It's the second picture I've seen of a tram accident where it has actually left the rails. Looking at the damage it does not look seem to be a major impact so how a does a one ton car knock a forty ton tram of its tracks?

Interesting technique with the trolley poles on the NCT trolleybus. Seems to be using one pole on one wire of the 'up' side and one pole on one wire on the 'down' side of the road

Seems it's not Trams that always have a bump!

But at least it didn't cause major delays!, Just a quick unhooking of the poles, move out of the way on battery and road clear, simples!!
