This car looks somehow "naked" without headlight.


However, i guess the "brow" under the front windows,

contains lamps which illuminate the front sash,

to make the car visible for other traffic.

A perfect scene to combine model vehicles and trolleys ?

I think we are very lucky in Melbourne Australia, we kept our tramway system,
but all the other capitol cities in Australia removed them in the 1950s & 1960s.

We are lucky to have several restaurant cars running on the tracks.

You can't just hop on and get a meal, you have to book in advance,
and have plenty of cash, but they are there and that's great.

Peter

That is really different. 

Does one ride while eating,
or is the car stationary as a food truck would be ?

4 visits to Melbourne and never saw a restaurant trolley,

will need to look harder next visit.

Enjoying looking at various loco and car photos.

The cars have a set route,
and you book to get on at a convenient tram stop,
hop on, sit down, and eat whilst travelling the streets.

Eventually you get back to where you started, and hop off.

Not a cheap meal,
but it's an experience you would like to do at least once.
My day may come, one day if I win the lottery.

:)

.......Peter

I think they mostly run in the evenings,

or maybe you were looking the other way when they passed you.

Running in the evening's would explain why I have not seen them,

usually boarding the ferry to Tasmania at that time of day.

I will need to make better arrangements next trip.
