Correction, David: TfNSW is expert in 'modern light rail'. Don't you dare use the dirty word 'tram' in its presence!

I forgot to add, I recall reading in this group that the Varoiotrams were redesigned specially to cope with the profiles of that curve. If I recollect correctly, the tram operator was advised of the need for modifications and listened to the advice.... I recall the advice even came from members of this grouo.

TfNSW was not involved in the establishment of that original line and only became the owner when Gladys (bless her) succeeded in making a start on the new George Street lines. It was thus unable to stuff it up from the beginning. I presume TfNSW had a similar contempt for that original line as it had/has for the George Street lines.
