I understand W3 667 has been moved to Newport Workshops for inclusion in the filming of the Stephen Spielberg television mini-series "Pacific".
Perhaps this means it is no longer possible to have historic Melbourne trams filmed on the street? I remember taking photos of L104 and L106 outside Flinders Street station when they were used in the filming of the "Squizzy Taylor" move in the 1980s (this has been discussed previously on TDU).
I also understand a former MMTB "austerity" (wartime) bus is also being used in the filming.
There was an item on 3AW last week about the filming of the "Pacific" mini-series and the high prices being charged for both access to facilities and for "professional" advice about Melbourne in the 1940s. I do hope some of this money is flowing into the transport preservation movement.
