The Melbourne to Karachi tram or the “W-11 tram” was a Z class tram decorated by a team of professional Pakistani vehicle decorators, commissioned by the City of Melbourne for the 2006 Commonwealth Games.
Hard to believe Karachi used to have trams too, i wondered what happened to them, and why couldn’t they exist side by side colour ful forms of transportation and KCR? Why do we break everything down, instead of building up on them over time?
There was a time when citizens of Pakistan were accustomed to seeing Trams running all over the Karachi City center. It was one of the most popular means of conveyance in the city center. Today, only a handful of photos, a few landmarks and memories of Trams remain.
