Event description

Description

Hear stories from Transport Historian, Col Gilbertson, and see images from the early days of trams in Glebe - where the routes went, the location of remnants of Glebe’s Tram history which you can still see today and the significance of Rozelle Depot for local tram services.

Glebe Point Rd trams began in 1892 with trams running every six minutes on weekdays, increasing to every four minutes at peak hour and Saturday evenings.

The first trams were powered by steam and terminated at Millers Point. The Rozelle Tram Depot (now adaptively re-used as Tramsheds) was built in 1904 for the electrified Western tram lines, which closed on 22 November 1958.

For many years the Glebe Society actively lobbied government to re-open the Western Goods line for a light rail service.

History was remade with the light rail opening in 2000.
