Trams After Dark 2021

Saturday the 19th June 2021 saw the return of our annual Trams After Dark event. This year saw a Melbourne themed night, with three of our Melbourne trams in our collection operating all the evening’s services; these being W2 class 249, Ballarat 37 (ex-MMTB N class 119) and Z2 class 111. Two ex-Melbourne buses (Sydney Bus Museum’s MMTB Half-Cab 352 and KST’s MAN 15.220 519) also made a visit to add to the Melbourne flavour. Opportunity was taken to place Rail Grinder “Essanee” No. 3 and Scrubber 11 (ex-139s) on display in Cross Street as well, with 11’s new strobe lights switched on to take advantage of the nighttime atmosphere. Below are a selection of photos from the evening along with video shot by museum member Greg Travers, who has allowed us permission to upload it here.
