Interesting sequence of photos of PCC 980, some have it with the original tension spring trolley bases and trolley wheels, while the others with MMTB compression spring bases and carbon skids. As these pics, except for the Bourke and Elizabeth Sts shot that's obviously a bit later, look like they were all taken around the same time, it has captured the changeover.
What I’m asking is, did 980 get its poles changed because it moved from working the 69 (out of Malvern depot?) to the Bourke St lines, or as part of the general wheel to skid conversion ?
