There was much talk over the weekend about Bendigo's trams making a comeback to the public transport landscape, 40 years after the system shut down.
Conductors, tourists and local families flocked to Bendigo's vintage talking trams to celebrate the tourist attraction's 40th birthday.
The network started when the public transport tram system wound up in 1972.
Bendigo's newly elected Mayor, Lisa Ruffell, has again raised the idea of extending the trams through the city's arts precinct and beyond.
The Bendigo Trust's Tom Seddon says he is open to the idea but wants to develop a solid business case.
"You'd need to start is with a real multi-disciplinary master plan," he said.
The council says it will look into state or Federal Government funding and is considering a feasibility study.
