Pictures 36 and 37.

Once the cars were opened to everyone, they were thronged!  Crowds rode all the rest of the day.  The top picture shows ex-Melbourne car 452 leading one of the Perley Thomas cars, 450 or 451, up the line.  This illustrates a mode of operation which became typical, with two cars following each other on the single track, one car of the pair being wheelchair capable.  In the bottom picture, busy downbound car 451 enters the passing siding.
