The B2 Class trams are similar to the earlier B1 Class, but have some differences in braking and control systems. They were the first Melbourne trams to be air-conditioned. When they were first introduced the B2 trams had a seating capacity of 76, but some seats were later removed to improve standing capacity. The B2 is currently the most numerous class of tram in Melbourne. They are allocated to Essendon Camberwell, Preston, Brunswick and Glenhuntly depots.
