Awww, come on Trev,
In real life they were good for 2 or 3 trailer cars only, (maybe 4 at best) in those ARHS photos I've seen - until after they were retired to places like Bombo quarry and then they had the guts thrashed out of them. Check out the Kogarah tram at https://flic.kr/p/dxgFqp This was probably a maximum load?

A model should probably do as good as this prototype on the flat, provided that the trailer cars aren't built excessively "draggy".

I haven't found a photo of them in service at Bombo online yet but I know that there are photos of them. I have seen a photo of 11A with bodgied headstocks in service at Bombo. 21 went to Bulli colliery as a jetty shunter and 9A went to South Kembla Colliery, shunting the base of their incline.
