If you have not yet seen this video of mine you can expect to see some of those trams you mention moving along. Twice you will see 427 contemporary track near the Niddrie crossover and again in Royal Park. Some other Essendon W2s will also be seen.

Awesome pics once again Greg,i remember 427 as a long time Essendon car.Do you have any pics of 104/106 on the Zoo service?A good thing that i remember from those days was that if an L was not available for any reason usually a W was ru,i remember Popart 340 & decorated 965.Also wondering do you have any pics of Essendon W2's in service in the latter years from 80-85 namely 268,329 ,366,436 (SW2),486,597,625 & 630.Interesting to note is that 3 W2' s 366,486 & 597 were stored for a long time at Essendon up on 24 rd and were still there even after Essendon had no W2 's left or even depot shots from the day.

I stopped in front of where the old “St Moritz” ice skating used to be for some shots and then down at the junction at Luna Park. My conductor decided he should be in every shot, pretending to be the driver but strangely, he never wanted to actually become one! At the end of the shift I was able to get a couple of nice night shots in the yard at Hanna St. Depot.
