RE: Tram Square and a Tait

Yuri makes mention that THE Tait set stalled on the bank approaching Camberwell station.
Why was this so? Was one of the two motor cars (partially) defective?

Sunday last saw another test run by Steamrail's magnificently restored Tait set. Comprising Motors 317M and 381M, Trailer 208T and Driving Trailer 230D, the set ventured out from Newport and headed for the eastern suburbs.

It passed through Riversdale and over the tram square about ten minutes late having stalled on the bank approaching Camberwell station. By the time the train arrived here the sun was shining directly at the camera and in shot so it was a challenge to photograph and presented quite a challenge in post-production to achieve an acceptable result. Who knows when the next time is that we will see a Tait on a tram square in Melbourne?
