Traction in

Sydney, Australia

Sydney is a modern city of wide streets and uses standard rail gauge for its trams. Sydney operates long, articulated trams five sections in length. As is the case in many cities, the trams of Sydney are moving billboards carrying all manner of advertising. Depicted here are two trams, one advertising Johnnie Walker Red Label Scotch whiskey and one advertising MasterCard. The Johnnie Walker tram is appropriately painted red. April 2002 photos.
