I'm with you Alex.
There's a limit to what one can know about a city from internet searches and Google satellite views!

Here's my pic looking South down King William St last Thursday in the evening peak.

104 sat at Rundle St for a couple of cycle changes while passengers squeezed aboard - and was pretty full when it arrived where I was, at North Terrace,

The Adelaide trams are well patronised, and do not 'swallow crowds' like a Melbourne E due to fewer doors.
Perhaps Adelaide might consider buying Bombardier Es rather than more Madrid Citadis trams?

Mal Rowe - who reckons that Adelaide trams need to be bigger and more frequent in peak periods
