Where is it? (Victoria)

 
  712M Chief Commissioner

Since there currently is no "Where is it?" photo competition for Melbourne's Tram Network only. I thought that i would make one. Based around 574M's quiz in the melbourne suburban forum, the following rules apply:

(Melbourne Train Photo Quiz)

- Pictures can be anywhere on the Melbourne metropolitan tram system that uses Metcard fares. This includes light rail, depots, workshops, sidings and former tramways.

- First with the correct answer gets it.

- If you don't have a picture 72 hours (3 days) after you get it, first in best dressed gets it.

This means the floor is open after 72 hours, if the current winner has not posted an image; however, if the winner posts "Picture Up Soon", then we wait, patiently

- If Fang or NovoFang (Railpage Australia™) goes down, then the time for posting a pic is 24 hours after Railpage Australia™ is up again

- Hints can be given to a maximum of three. Enlarging crops constitute a hint.

- If the picture is not guessed after three days of the last guess, then the winner is the one who has guessed closest.

- If the person posting a picture takes more than three days to reply to guesses, the floor is thrown open

- If you have seen a photo that is on public record, and know the location, you should thereby stand out of the quiz, at least for that specific photo.



Any questions you have regarding the quiz, please post it or send me a PM.

Unless there is anything else that needs to be said that i have forgotten,

The floor is open!  Smile

Well then, does anyone know where my Z3 avatar is parked? I've had the photo for years and I don't even know where it is! That's the full photo, nothing's been cropped, although there's a bit of digital editing on the front panel due to the condition of the photo.

It's dated around the late 1980s, back when Z3s had the run of just about anywhere (except the light rail lines, if they were converted at the time of this photo).

I don't think it would be West Maribyrnong, as the last section is ballasted track (similar to the light rail lines and Victoria St on the 109 and 30), except for the last stop and crossover, which is concreted. I've only been on the 57 once, and it was this year. 223 is/was a Brunswick tram, although it apparently spent a few nights at Malvern according to VicSig.

Not sure if it's a clue or not, but the overhead looks like it's on a sharp turn or maybe a depot. I can't confirm it's Preston though, unless someone can show a photo of the street at a similar angle. Not an easy feat if anything has been built or rebuilt in the past 20 years though!

West Maribyrnong used to be ballast track with a siding for workers' tram.  Wests Rd., however, was concreted, but the diverging line should be to the left.

One guess may be guessed per user until 5 incorrect guesses have been made or the next photo has been posted.

Sorry, Heihachi_73, but since you don't even know the location of the tram, i think it would be best if we threw the quiz open again. Happy hunting! Smile

I thought it was that, but when I went for a look on Google street view it didn't look the same... is the photo recent?
