B2 Class

Melbourne’s B2-class Light Rail Vehicles are a two-section, three-bogie, articulated tram operating on the Melbourne tram network. A total of 130 B2-class trams were ordered by the Victorian Government and built by Comeng (later ABB) in Dandenong. They were developed for the conversion of the St Kilda and Port Melbourne railway lines to light rail, and introduced by the Metropolitan Transit Authority, and later the Public Transport Corporation between 1984 and 1994.

You can read more about the trams on Wikipedia; there are a list of links there to take you to other sites of interest.
