Post to discussion


We went on the W11 tram twice & loved it...we were transported away to another world with lively, interesting discussion & marvellous music...had fun meeting people & loved the experience of being on your lovely tram....thanks to the connies & all those who have made this experience possible. Please continue this marvellous Melbourne experience!

I think the W-11 tram as a transport fixture firmly cements the strong cultural as well multicultural identity Melbourne is becoming more and more recognised for. I am sad to hear it won't be continuing after the end of March. I strongly urge to keep it going on the city circle. Or how about hiring it out for private/corporate functions occasionaly?

This sure looks brilliant! Hats off to the people behind this effort and of course the web master here. Special thanks to uneducated_but_decent for referring it to all of us there.

The Commonwealth Games are over for another four years but I hope the good Burghers of this city keep the W 11 tram going for ever. It would be the best thing to happen in Melbourne in a very long time. What an amazing Tram it is . I could not get over the decorations on the outside but insde it was so cool. The decorations so fantastic, the music pulsating and the conductors very colourful. It is what makes Melbourne a very interesting city to live in.
