Extra Open Day to recognise 140 years since the first Sydney Steam Tram
1) Invited guests will attend a ceremony at 11:00 – all welcome!
2) Edward Loughry came to Australia in 1879 from the Baldwin Locomotive Works in the USA to assemble the first four Sydney tram motors and to implement the service on 29 September 1879. He later had a distinguished career with the Tramways Department and the NSWGR. To provide a unique personal connection, one of his descendants will give a short talk about the Loughry family's 200+ years combined service with the NSWGR and Tramways.
3) In addition, rarely viewed exhibits, previously unseen photographs and memorabilia will form part of a newly assembled display for this day only, including items on loan from private collections and Sydney Tramway Museum.
