I understand W3 667 has been moved to Newport Workshops for inclusionin the filming of the Stephen Spielberg television mini-series "Pacific".
Perhaps this means it is no longer possible to have historic Melbournetrams filmed on the street? I remember taking photos of L104 and L106outside Flinders Street station when they were used in the filming ofthe "Squizzy Taylor" move in the 1980s (this has been discussedpreviously on TDU).
I also understand a former MMTB "austerity" (wartime) bus is alsobeing 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 tofacilities and for "professional" advice about Melbourne in the 1940s.I do hope some of this money is flowing into the transportpreservation movement.
