The Tramway Museum Society of Victoria has been preserving trams and related infrastructure since 1962.
In this time we have collected Melbourne cable trams, electric trams from across Australia, buses and work trucks from Melbourne and tramway related items of interest.
We operate the Tramway Heritage Centre in Bylands where most of our cable trams, electric trams, buses and collectables are housed. For further information about the Tramway Heritage Centre, click on this link.
The TMSV also produces a quarterly publication “Running Journal” which is available on our site along with historical articles highlighting the way things were.
