Loftus: 2017 Vintage Tramway Festival

WRAP UP:  We had a brilliant day on Sunday showing some of the cars from the upcoming the Cronulla Pre-WWII Vintage Car & Bike Show at the Sydney Tramway Museum's open day at their Loftus headquarters.

The Museum's 2017 Vintage Tramway Festival landed on it's feet with the weather on what started out a rainy morning turned into beautiful, clear sunshine.

Festival goers were treated to what organisers are calling the best open day ever.

Thousands of people, including many family groups, took advantage of the Open Day to ride the rails and experience the feeling of riding aboard some of the Museum's most rare and iconic trams. 

Many of the older folk said they were transported back to their childhoods as the relived the glory days of riding through Sydney's streets on a toast-rack Sydney tram.

We were happy to help out the hard working team of Volunteers who keep the Tramway Museum up and running. Great job guys.

The Museum is well worth a visit, there is so much to see and absorb in their massive collection of trams, support equipment, extraordinary photos and information. They have close to 100 historically significant trams which celebrate the history and the evolution of these magnificent machines.
