If anyone has the time, data and inclination, it would be interesting to see these works plotted on a horizontal time line graph - to see how much overlap between individual projects there was.

What is the height difference of a single vs double deck train?

And then, what is the difference in height requirement of the tunnel (factoring in width)?

Only the previous 5 trips (time, date, zone)

I'm thinking they would have to make tram zone, zone 0.
