But they ran concurrently with the new-fangled electric systems, with a
decent amount of overlap between horse, cable and electric power (did
Victoria dabble with steam trams at all ?)
Sydney managed to build, operate and close the horse car line, then later
built the steam/electric lines. So many people refer to the 'great Sydney
tramway' as the 2nd generation system, the first being the failed horse car
What Sydney has now is our 3rd generation tramway.
