Herb are you trying to make a groan man cry???
The wires were for the ensuing elecric busses and even today if you know where to look you can still see wall roses where the wires once were...

Hi Trevor an Tony,
Just found a most unhappy steam tram at https://www.flickr.com/photos/uon/8270513193/in/album-72157627333542955/
Not sure what the story was with behind this one, but it looks like a boiler explosion?

Hmm the 2 man version with the lower mounted headlight. Usually these days a Baldwin seems to need a crew bigger than Cecil de Mille could assemble...
