Sydney Tramway Museum's J 675 re-enters service.

Postby Red and Cream » Sun Feb 22, 2009 9:41 pm

It was a special day at the Sydney Tramway Museum today as they celebrated the entry into traffic of their J Class 675 which was removed from service way back in 1934.

It was also a chance to try out my new digital camera for the first time.




J Class 675 has just broken through the ribbon to re enter service after leaving the streets of Sydney 75 years ago.The ribbon is being held by the family in whose backyard the tram was found.


675 has just crossed the highway on its way back to the museum.


F 393 and C cars 29 and 290 operating as a motor trailer set at the National Park Station.


C 29 and C290.


N 728 and J 675.

F 393 in the depot yard, what a great backdrop that building will make when it is finished although it is even impressive now.

Some great Sydney Tramway photos there Red and Cream. I am definitely going to have to check this museum out next time I'm visiting Sydney. I sure would like to see some early photos of the Sydney National Park railway station back when electric trains use to service it.

The camera is a Panasonic TZ15 9MP with a wide angle lens and 10 x optical zoom Inspector and for first up photos i am pleased with it, just have to watch the cropping of the shot when i upload it to the web.

Yeh davemail66, the museum is a must on any enthusiasts visit to Sydney, the shots here are only a minute portion of the trams that they operate at various times.

The national park line was closed in 1991 and converted for use by the Sydney tramway museum with only two stations, scout camp and national park. it is nice to see J 675 back in her home state. the old girl looks good after 70 odd years as a shed great pictures.

Here is the actual rail ticket for the tour AEC Decker but don't ask me what numbered cars were used as apart from the rebuilt Bradfield C3074 and being 1965 the Tulloch trailers would be near new.
Maybe someone else can provide the car numbers??????

Great photos there, R&C.

I thought J675 was kept in a backyard in Greenacre, Sydney :?:. Unless I'm getting confused.

A couple of other questions I have, though.

Were Js involved in any accidents during their careers :?:.

When did the first withdrawals/scrapping start :?:.

Regards and thankyou,
Ben

I think the home state comment refers to the fact that it was sent to Bendigo for a few years for its restoration.

But you are correct about it being at Greenacre, prior to this.
