The Sydney tramway service was a world class undertaking operating 1535 tramcars at its peak. In 1944/45 it carried over 404.6 million passengers. An excellent video (VHS PAL or NTSC format) on the system, "Shooting Through", is available from the Museum.

Royal National Park service

The museum operates over 3 km of track including the 2 km Royal National Park line. The Royal National Park service operates separately to the Museum's historic service as a tourist tramway known as "Parklink". "Parklink" commenced operations on 1 May 1993 over a former suburban railway branch line constructed in 1886. The Museum converted the line to light rail standards and connected it to the existing museum line to establish what is now a most popular means of access to the world's second oldest national park. ------------------------------------------------------------
