Tony, yes, but the photo you provided has the TB out in the open countryside, and I cannot recall seeing a habitation in the fields. Definitely not a place for trams, unless from one dense CBD to a major also dense suburb. Rather like the Glenelg tramway - CBD to seaside resort.
Regards and a Happy New Year

Pilsen has a population close to that of Townsville, about 180,000 but it's a major industrial city and, with the European pattern of high public transport use, it's not surprising that there's a intensely-used public transport system.
