Museum joins CESLR L2 opening

The Sydney Tramway museum was privileged to be invited to join the City and Eastern Suburbs Light Rail opening party at Circular Quay.

Car C29, which probably was part of the original George Street electric tramway opening 120 years ago was taken down to Circular Quay by Australian Train Movers in the early hours of Friday morning the 13th of December and spent 3 days on display next to the terminus of the new line. C29 returned safely to Loftus in the early hours of Monday 16th.

Over the weekend 1000s of people admired C29 and many ‘selfies’ were taken with it.

We thank Transport for New South Wales and Transport Heritage for making this happen.
