RE: Frost on the wires

TP guesses that frost on the wires isn’t a problem in Australia.

Frost/ice on the overhead was an ongoing problem for Launceston trolley buses especially first thing in the morning.

Launceston experiences a wide variation of day/night temperatures leading to a night-time build-up of ice on the overhead. Various strategies were tried to deal with this issue including the fitting of cast-iron shoes to trolley buses on early depot runouts.

I guess this is a problem we don't have to deal with in Australia.

They do have treatments to clear lines of it but this tram presumably ran into a new lot while on a run.
