Sydney Tramway Museum
Adjacent to Loftus Railway Station
New South Wales, 2232
Sydney Tramway Museum provides a nostalgic and educational insight into the lifestyle of Sydneysiders during the 100 year period of tramway operation from 1861 to 1961, with trams running, plus restoration works-in-progress, exhibits and photos depicting the development and operation of tramways. Trams carry passengers towards Sutherland and to The Royal National Park along the former railway line (two kilometres).
The Museum houses an extensive collection of Sydney trams from 1896 to 1952, plus trams from Brisbane, Melbourne, Ballarat, San Francisco, Nagasaki, Berlin, Munich and Milan, enabling comparisons between the different tramcar designs. A double-deck tram from Hobart and a tram from Kalgoorlie are to be restored. The Museum also houses Sydney’s last remaining double-deck trolley-bus.
A small bookshop and kiosk sells a range of books, postcards, souvenirs and light refreshments. Picnic facilities including electric barbecues are available within the grounds.
A wholly volunteer-run organisation. Tramway preservation since 1950.
