The present 124 is, dramatically, got a special story.

Pictured below are the original body of tram 124. It was likely one of the scrapped bodies being used for the building of the Millennium cars. The “new” 124 was renumbered from 134 hence resulted in the vacancy of no.134.

現役的124號,背後其實有一段故事。

下圖為124號的原本車身,相信是配合電車公司建造千禧電車而拆毀。其後新124號用了134號的車身重投服務,134這個號碼從此停用。

Evidence to verify it was actually the body of 134 are:

  1. the trolley style, and
  2. a number “134” chalked under the bench can still be vaguely seen.

以下可以證明124號仍然帶有134號的影子:

  1. 拖里款式
  2. 座椅板蓋下仍可隱約看見”134″ 的痕跡
