Ghost trams

Sunday Age storyNot for the first time, a blog post of mine has been adapted into a newspaper story.

Today’s Sunday Age reports on “ghost trams”: On our tramway’s secret service.

Interestingly, Yarra Trams uses the term “ghost tram” for something else already — a tram that’s out of radio contact.

Last year The Age did a story on “ghost trains”.

  1. Reuben, please don’t clutter my blog comments with anything!

    Andrew, no, I thought it might be a good weekend paper story (a bit lighter than most) and made contact.

    The paper version has a short list of just a few “secret” route numbers.

  2. I just thought the Journalist was being lazy to plaugarise your web site! Lucky I read the full story at the source ie your blog! Keep up the good work

  3. > Lobbyists for voluntary organisations donโ€™t get paid.

    Understood.

    Still, is writing a piece based on another’s blog post lazy journalism, or are they simply standing on the shoulders of giants? ;)
