There was a time when Brisbane, like many other cities around the world, had an extensive network of trams. A massive fire destroyed much of the fleet of city trams in 1962, and this was seen as the beginning of the end, with the tram network being closed down completely in 1969.
Fortunately the Brisbane Tramway Museum has managed to preserve some of the rolling stock, and with the hard work of volunteers we can experience a jump back in time and ride some of the restored trams over a short track. Tram 99 seen here was used between 1936 and 1945.
