Is the backlot still pretty barren since the fire? Some friends of mine (and maybe myself) are going in a few weeks and the last time we went was the day before the fire happened. I'm just curious as to how they're running the tram, nowadays.

I'd say about 85-90% of the original tram tour remains. The actual area of the fire probably isn't as big as you imagine... you'll drive past it during the tour. They are actually refreshingly forthcoming in discussing it during the tour. You also get a view of the damaged area on the path to the tour, between the "Hollywood Sign" photo op wall and the escalators.
