Here is a new video about the Melbourne F class' vastly less costly
I've posted several comments on the video (using my tony name) to try to
introduce some perspective and balance and, in particular, to argue why it
would have been better to use trams. The video commentary did make a
disparaging comparison with Melbourne's trams and I countered that in my
main comment by outlining the true picture about modern trams and capacity.
However, I found myself having to carefully avoid mention of the Melbourne
F class as it has no advantages whatsoever over the Brisbane Hess bus and I
have my fingers crossed that nobody in Brisbane will cotton onto it and use
it for more disparaging ammunition against trams. You guys in Melbourne
certainly don't help argue the case for trams, but I do understand that
it's a problem with your crappy, mean governments and not the expertise of
the operation itself.
(who thinks that aspects of the new Sydney tram system give comfort to
enough anti-tram arguments without Melbourne joining in as well!)
