Tram jumps rails at corner

Tram jumps rails at East Brisbane Corner. (The Telegraph, 18 December 1937)

Tram traffic on the Balmoral line was dislocated for an hour and a half at a particularly busy period when a dreadnought model jumped the rails at the bend at Latrobe Street and Lytton Road, East Brisbane.  About 13 or more trams soon piled up behind it as gangs made several attempts to put it back on the rails. However, because of the curve many attempts proved futile. Eventually the car was returned to the terminus. ” (The Telegraph, 18 December 1937)
