    Were what's being replaced original posts (i.e. rescues)? If so, they've had a good innings.

    Latest from the museum:

    "We're pleased to report more progress on the current work being undertaken by Pod-Trak to address the safety issues outside the tram depots. The new traction poles have been installed.These are called “masts” in modern Tramway terminology. As well as being safe and effective, they should last for many more years."
