Tram 200 has a half open-top body with a large water tank inside the cabin and a pair of cleaning brushes underneath for tramways washing as the trams often release the sands onto the track for reducing the speed and hence track washing is necessary for every nights.

The corner lights flash at night time indicate that it is operating.

 200號工程電車呈半開篷式,車廂載有大水箱,車底裝有刷洗器,用作清洗路軌。由於電車行走時,大多會排放沙粒在路軌上以減低車速,因此需要每晚為路軌進行灑水清潔。

寂靜的街道,200號的車頭車尾會閃著指示燈,表示工作進行中。

Tram 200 previously has got light two-tone green livery and note the two roof-boxes, one of these was removed afterwards.

200號之前是兩色相間的淺綠色車身,車頂有兩個電箱,一個後來已被移走。

The past works tram 200 was single-decker, easily visible at daytime and sometimes used for training purpose.

舊200號為單層車身,易於白天看見,間中用作訓練用途。
