Sydney Tramway Museum, 1950-

From Engineering Heritage New South Wales


The Sydney tramway system operated from 1890 to 1961 and was one of the largest in the world between 1910 and 1946 when it carried about one million passengers a day. This museum records the system’s history and interprets the engineering standards used, the development of local tramcar design and the tramway’s significance in the development of Sydney.

The museum’s collection includes comparative examples of interstate and international tramcars.
