You can see on the aerials a large, long block of flats at an odd angle to the rest of the development because it is on the alignment, rather tlike the blocks of flats on the old Randwick ROW.

Note that there was no sinking fund for the tramways and the profits were pinched for consolidated revenue and then after WW2 they moaned that they couldn't afford to repair and update it. Typical government bastards!

Just like the 3x3 fuel levy that was supposed to be spent directly on urgent road upgrades in the aftermath of the Kempsey bus crash.
Only a fraction was traceable to road construction, the rest was absorbed into general fuel excise. Intended to be for three years only, ran for eleven.

Another remnant gone.....I was sweating on recovering the rosette from the Metro demolition site at ~254 Pitt Street, but the whole wall's gone. You have to be quick!

NARRABEEN.
There appears to be a tram wrapped in black plastic ~100m south of the famous Narrabeen tram waiting shed. What's the story?

It is one of the trams from Rozelle tramsheds prior to the redevelopment there. Has been restored by the council.
