Tram operations unaffected by remote storage shed fire.
Normal rides and activities continue on Sundays and Wednesdays despite the fire which was not on our premises. A shed within the Royal National Park was temporarily containing some historic tram bodies and motor buses. These were awaiting restoration and assessment. Police are investigating.
The visitors who arrived by steam train
One of our largest groups enjoyed rides and inspections of our tram collections on Sunday 25th October. We were able to provide a coupled pair of toastrack trams (one of them being kindly on loan from the Powerhouse Museum) on one trip while another convoy sported trams from the twenties and thirties.
Earlier that week, we were pleased to provide tram rides (and lessons on transport history) to one of our largest school groups in years.
And on our normal mid-week Open Day, we were happy to welcome a great bunch of seniors from Anglicare. Their people enjoyed a great trip “Down Memory Lane”. By tram, of course!
Your visit to our Museum
Our Display Hall, showcasing our oldest and most interesting trams – including the world’s only remaining prison tram – is also in full shade! Our small green kiosk offers cooling soft drinks, a range of ice creams, tea and coffee for the grown ups and more.
A favourite feature of our Museum is that every hour (at 15 minutes past) sees us transporting people right into the Royal National Park – some describe it as our Bushland Cruise!
Nowadays there can hardly be a cheaper day in Sydney: seniors and concession card holders have unlimited rides for only $12 and school children for just $10 (pre-schoolers are free). The adult price is $18 and there are family arrangements where, after two adults and just one child, extra children in the same family are free. Your day ticket gives you unlimited rides and entry to our Display Hall where you’ll find our older trams including the world’s only remaining prison tram!
Our volunteers look forward to welcoming you soon.
