Sydney’s tramway system was once the largest in the Southern Hemisphere.

From a short-lived horse tram line in 1861, it developed into an extensive steam tram system.

Electrification came early, and in 1899 conversion and expansion began in earnest. But from the mid-1930s, transport policy favoured buses, and the last tram ran In 1961.

The Sydney Light Rail line opened in 1997, using the abandoned goods line from Pyrmont to Lilyfield, reaching Central Station via the Collonade.

Extensions have been proposed but have not materialised.

Modern ABB cars with hub-mounted motors are used.

After the closure of the Sydney tramways, a dedicated band of enthusiasts assembled a representative collection of Sydney trams.

Now housed at Loftus, near Sutherland, trams operate regularly.
