[Trams and trains in 1904 Dublin]

Who rides trams and trains in Ulysses? (trains and trams both have tracks, trams have overhead power lines but share the street, trains have onboard engines)

1. Conmee in Wandering Rocks briefly rides a train

2. Artifoni in Wandering Rocks eventually catches a tram

3. Stephen may ride a train between episodes 2 and 3, and also maybe between 1 and 2?

4. Bloom's budget lists only two tramfares, one between episodes 5 and 6, and one between episodes 14 and 15. But he ought also to have ridden a tram between episodes 3 and 4, and between 6 and 7?

There's purposeful confusion at the end of Oxen and beginning of Circe regarding the Westland Row and Amiens train stations.

To and from Sandymount would be a long walk but the tram isn't mentioned?
