The Z3 Class trams followed on from the earlier Z1 Class and Z2 Class, which brought a new design of tram to Melbourne in the 1970s. They were built with different trucks to the Z1 and Z2 trams, and this improved their ride quality. Almost all of the class remain in service, although number 149 was damaged by fire and subsequently scrapped. They are allocated to Malvern, Essendon, Glenhuntly and Brunswick depots.
