Trolley Wire

Trolley-Wire started life as the members journal of the South Pacific Electric Railway (Sydney Tramway Museum), but over time has morphed in a journal for Australian tramway museum coverage.

SPER News was ‘spun off’ from Trolley-Wire in the early 70’s as Trolley-Wire became more nationally focused and a journal of record and a separate newsletter was created to keep the membership informed of activities and events around the museum itself.

Please note that these archives are provided in the spirit of ‘scholarly co operation’ to allow members and interested parties to access back issues and do personal research and are still covered by Copyright and Intellectual property rights. SPER does NOT release these to the public domain.

20th Century Index

An index was created for – Trolley Wire up to 1999 by Dale Budd and Randal Wilson as a sort of Y2K project. While efforts have been made to make internal links in this index
consistent, it does not link back to the archives on this web site.
