Two E class trans sit at the St Kilda Route 96 terminus. The two trams are of the same class, but are different subclasses, 6023 being an E1 and 6052 being an E2.
The E2 were introduced as an improvement on the original E1 trams. They introduced better visibility for drivers and more handrails for passengers.
Acland St itself has undergone major changes in recent years, with the street being rebuilt to allow a double track tram terminus and a car-free environment. This was much to the dismay of local shop owners, who feared the loss of parking would result in a loss of business. As far as I can tell, the result has been a benefit if anything.
I don’t post much about trams, largely because I know a heck of a lot more about trains than trams. Having said that, trams do run on rails and I do live in Melbourne. I catch a tram every weekday up Swanston St and have many tram photos, so maybe you’ll see more in the future.
If you scroll back far enough on my photos on this account, you’ll find a photo of an E class at the old Acland St terminus, back when it was single track and not DDA compliant.
So I’m thinking of dropping “Rotation” in about a week or so🔥🔥 I need to make cover art and do some final mixing and stuff. This pic was from a shoot using some merch(denim jacket)from a friends clothing line thats starting up, more details soon👀🔥 📸 @tavanrs
