On the Point Ormond topic, here again is my picture of No 198 in Glen
Huntley Road approaching the VR ESR crossing.

Please, what class is No 198 ?

Further to yesterdays thread. The bars are down across the off side
doorways. Did these always prevent off side boarding and alighting. Were /
are these covered in official tramway by-laws to make it an offence to pass
beneath the bars.

As I mentioned yesterday, the bars fitted to the end doorways on Sydney's R
class trams were rarely used and were not fitted on the later R1 class
