From what I remember of red trains, they were 7 car or 4 car. Maybe 3 and 6 car trains must have started running after I left (1975). I remember that the blue trains were 7 cars too. So wouldn't the platform at St. Kilda have been large enough for a 7-car?

retoned a little.
The caption stated six-car, and two pantographs are visible (the 'third'
must be a shadow). However, I can't see M-T-D-M-T-D fitting. Is it only a
three-car set, M-T-M (very unusual)?

6.47 Because of a collision in Elizabeth Street, Route 19/57/59 trams are
operating only between the suburbs and Stop 5 Melbourne Central. VicRoads
and Victoria Police were not aware of anything, so it must have been a minor
bingle. 6.53 resumption.

The water has run down the tram tracks to the corner of Collins and
