No, I'm talking about when you were showing my brother and I where to catch the tram back to Crown, after U23D on that Saturday night... It was MILES away, and you were all "Oh, that must be the Route Blahblah tram cos it's a B2 and the B2s mostly go on that route and not the other one"....

You couldn't see the route number but you could spot miniscule differences in window design from at least 200 metres.

I should also add, or landing light configuration

Do you see the B1 daily?

Because you sure don't see the A330 daily

B1: Are you thinking what I'm thinking, B2?

All I can say to that is, this dude spends way too much time looking at trams.

I've been in Melbourne 15 months and seen the B1 three times. Twice in the last five days.

Oooh, right, that. Well, B2s are quite noticeably longer than Z3s, the front is shaped totally differently, and it's got plenty of light streaming out of it to highlight the window and door dimensions. It's not hard for me to differentiate a B2 and Z3. If you know what to look for, you're good. I've even taught my legally blind friend to tell them apart!

I've been at this house for nearly 3 years, and i've seen the A330 twice. Once when i was at the airport with my camera too far away to do anything about it.

So it's not on a regularly scheduled route or anything?

There were two B1 trams built, as prototypes for the B2. One B1 is in storage and out of service. The other B1 can show up on any route operated by its depot at any time, and it's just dumb luck if you happen to see it.

Now I have a vision of three visually challenged railfans all grabbing different parts of a tram and arguing about what model it is.

We all know I'd win the argument, because according to you, my vision's fine, so I'd be the one who can tell what it actually is.

Would the others believe you, though?

"Oh sure, he SAYS he can see the number, but I'm telling you, this pattern on the steps is ONLY found on the Z3...."
