I first saw it in a video of a Prague heritage tram convoy.
This isn't the video I remember, but it shows vintage trams with the 'T'
adaptor on their poles.
It rather helps that Prague runs unidirectional trams so the 4 wheelers
don't need to 'swing the pole' at termini, as they are all loops.
I've also seen a video of a german city 'vintage festival' with an old 4
wheeler out with the same modification. I do not know who did it first.
The trams that run Prague's regular' heritage service have been modified
with pantographs (and traffic transponders).
