Advertising Tram Photo Request

Postby CR1181 » Mon Jan 18, 2016 2:31 pm

Hello,
Many years ago while I was on a holiday in Melbourne, I remember riding a tram that had a special livery for the "Bethesda Hospital".
This tram has a special significance to me as it was the first advertising tram I ever caught, So I was wondering if anyone had any photos of this tram.
I would be very greatful.
Thank you In advance :)

Hi,
I have another request.
On one of my later trips, I remember a Z class tram running in a special livery for a car company. It would have been around 1995 or so. The only real I remember about it was that it was yellow
Can someone help?

That was Z3 175 in it's very first AOA, advertising SEAT. I have a pic of it, however i won't be posting it due to copyright reasons due to it belonging to someone else

Thank you Maxy, I wasn't too worried about the picture, I just wanted to know which company it was advertising

Northwest corner of Flinders / Swanston - you can see the Gas and Fuel towers in the background.

Advertising Tram Photo Request

Postby CR1181 » Fri Dec 07, 2018 10:29 pm

Hello,
I was revisiting this topic and it made me curious about other advertising trams from that period of time.
If anyone is willing to share any pictures, that would be great.
I'm happy for anyone to privately send any pictures. PM for details.
There are a few in particular which I am interested in seeing:

Tram 14
Tram 175 (Visy Recycling)
Tram 209 (South African Airways)
Tram 220 (Motorola, Telecom)
Tram 2014 (Optus)
Any tram with the base colours but without advertising

I'm grateful for the sharing of pictures.
Thanks :)
