Do those trams come to NZ from Melbourne? That's the city that crosses my mind when I see that.

Same here.
It actually crossed my mind too because of the yellow and green. They may actually have been surpluses from Melbourne because we don't have any trams here, at all. The one I boarded was just some sort of a transport from the main museum to the hangar, so they might have just used the Melbourne ones just to have a tram. I am just assuming but I will ask next time.

Seeing trains in snow scenes always reminds me of Dionne Warwick singing the theme from the movie Valley of the Dolls.

Gotta get off, gonna get
Have to get off from this ride
Gotta get hold, gonna get
Need to get hold of my pride

When did I get, where did I
How was I caught in this game
When will I know, where will I
How will I think of my name

When did I stop feeling sure, feeling safe
And start wondering why, wondering why
Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
What's in back of the sky, why do we cry

Gotta get off, gonna get
Out of this merry-go-round
Gotta get off, gonna get
Need to get on where I'm bound

When did I get, where did I
Why am I lost as a lamb
When will I know, where will I
How will I learn who I am

Is this a dream, am I here, where are you
Tell me, when will I know, how will I know
When will I know why?

For me it's Merle Haggard's "Mamma Tried"
Trains just get under your skin, don't they?

The first thing I remember knowing
Was a lonesome whistle blowing
And a young gun's dream of growing up to ride
On a freight train leaving town
Not knowing where I'm bound
No one could change my mind, but mama tried...
