Melbourne’s A2 Class Trams are single-unit bogie trams, (officially known as light rail vehicles) operating on the Melbourne tram network. The A2 sub-class trams were an extension of the original A-class order. 42 A2-class units were built between 1985 and 1987. Similar to the A1 class, they feature superior Hanning & Kahl brakes, more reliable door mechanisms, and were the first Melbourne trams to be fitted with pantograph current collection.
