Agree. I cannot remember ever having seen an offside running board raised in Melbourne - I think they were all rusted solid in
position. Or at least rendered immovable by caked on dirt.
Re what I thought was the superstructure of the trailer, I am now convinced that it was a painting on the wall behind the trailer.
It looks to me as if there was a wiggle in the track - else the 'trailer' would not have been on the same set of rails as the tram.
Where could this be?

Having a closer look, I don’t believe the running board is up either, it was not a practice used in Melbourne at least latterly.
