No 118 is at the Elizabeth St terminus of the Glenorchy and Springfield lines at the GPO.

The means by which Hobart bow collectors were swung over can be seen above the tram’s roof. Two ropes were attached about 2/3 up the collector frame and one extended in each direction along the roof through guides and down through a small hole to the right of the driver’s position. A solid tug was enough to momentarily elevate the overhead as the bow swung over.
