When the trams went to Mitcham

All the old stories of trams in Adelaide are beginning to surface…some great tales of the former tram network (and now perhaps tinted somewhat by time and memory?!)

Everything old is new again, with a modern twist if we get the system right.

Big ticks to the State Govt for putting this on the agenda.  Designed correctly, light rail has far more benefits ‘beyond the tracks’.
