For an oval ground, Kogarah is nice and compact. I'd love to see a game there.

Aw, Royal Brunei is going off frequency now. Great voice and accent though.
The reason softball and baseball are being cut is because they don't meet the Olympic requirements of enough countries on enough continents playing them. Rugby does. So I question your point.

To me a tram is like the city circle ones you've been posting. I still can't get used to the idea of new-fangled trams.

Two Z3s on William Street about to cross Collins.

Playing with a realistic chance of winning?

I can't be bothered getting into this tonight, again.

I feel as though rugby at the Olympics would be like football and the Olympics. Some type of weirded out bastardised form of the game with all sorts of odd eligibility rules

I find the Z class to be a transition class. Although they were built in the 1970s, in terms of their design they still draw upon techniques from the 1930s. Just compare the Z3 with my absolute favourite tram ever, Wellington's Fiducia:



Probably I'm so partial to the Z3 because they remind me of the Fiducia. Roughly similar length and the fronts are clearly quite similar with the slanted windscreen and destination board jutting out and placement of the route number on the top right.

I am entirely opposed to the low-floor articulated trams.

I suppose it's a question of what you prioritise - global participation, in which rugby quite strongly wins by the Olympic criteria, or chance of winning, which you probably do have a point. If you just used sevens as it is, it would be New Zealand vs Fiji and maybe South Africa would have a faint chance. I bet it'll have weird eligibility rules, though.

Incidentally, apparently cricket meets the global participation criteria and may be in the Olympics soon. The rise of Twenty20 is a big help there.

Now that's a tram.

Incidentally, I don't have nearly enough photos of the W class. Obviously, they run the City Circle. They're also used on route 30 across the northern side of the CBD, and routes 78/79, which is one of only two routes that doesn't pass through the CBD - it runs north-south in the eastern/southern inner suburbs. Otherwise, they only appear on other routes on special occasions. Bit of a shame really. We desperately need more trams so I don't see why they don't push some of the stored ones back into service.

Things sure have moved on from that. Melbourne trammies have a pretty fancy set of buttons and knobs at their disposal now.
