Taken out of the back window of a tram in Potsdam on holiday. Used a 10 stop screw in Hoya filter on my Coolpix A and a sturdy pocket tripod. I'm finding that you have far more opportunities to take interesting off the cuff pictures with a high quality compact camera than a full DSLR. Setting everything up with a full size tripod in a tram with people getting on and off just isn't practical and draws too much attention.

Give it a go! The trams in Potsdam dont have a driver compartment at each end so you can do this. There is a handy height window sill that makes it fairly easy to set up. You need straight bit of track and smooth motion too. If the tram turns or judders you just get images that are too busy. Something I only saw when I got home is that there are tiny filaments in the glass, I assume for demisting, that can come out. I had to work hard in Lightroom to loose them.
