1 Horsepower tram
Here is a restored horse tram I saw while on holidays recently at Victor Harbour, South Australia
The Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram is located in the city of Victor Harbor, South Australia, Australia. The tramway links the visitor information centre in downtown Victor Harbor with the nearby Granite Island, running for half of its route over a 630 metres (2,070 ft) viaduct or pier, locally described as a causeway.
It is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world, and provides service every day throughout the year. There are four tramcars, each hauled by one of eight Clydesdale horses. The line is built to 1,600 mm (5 ft 3 in) gauge, as were many of the early railways of South Australia.(Wikipedia)
