The Birmingham Daily Post 23 December 1885 p4 reported -  "We have published lately many letters on the subject of steam tramcars, and the various grievances alleged against them...[it is alleged that] they emit smoke and steam to an annoying extent ... the noise caused by them and the shaking of the ground result in the depreciation of the value of house property...Just now, in one district of Edgbaston in particular... there is an active scheme of resistance put in operation."
