Opening objectives

Route #29, is also featured as part of my 'Train-Link tram routes' project, and in that page, is known as a 'respective pair' type of setup.

Currently, the majority of trams on the current East Coburg route, operate to/from the Moreland depot, so as to change drivers at the depot.

The Moreland tram depot is right next to the Moreland railway station on the Upfiled line, and would be a perfect candidate as a train-link route.

The plan here is, to try out the idea, by just making use of the existing tram services, with no additional services added whatsoever.

Unlike others in my proposed list of train-link trams, this one has the lowest catchment, and is the only one which may not attract a great volume of passengers.

None the less, if the trams need to operate anyway, why not take advantage of this fact.
