Traction in

Christchurch, New Zealand

The tram system of the city of Christchurch is similar to that of the San Francisco trolley system in that the cars are a collection of restored and refurbished cars from many locations. While visiting there, I did not see two identical cars. These photos were taken in June 1998.

The American Embassy on wheels - McDonald's is everywhere. This tram serves as a place for children's parties.

Car 152 on the Christchurch City Loop

Car 178 on the City Loop. Notice the marked difference as compared to Car 152.

Another totally different car.
