They could use relay drivers at Moore Park. But I do wonder if what
would happen if the incoming driver was too quick off the mark and tried
to activate their cab before the outgoing driver had flicked their key
off. Probably spend the next 30 minute rebooting the tram with a
'battery off - battery on' to clear the 'multiple cabs activated' error.
