Sydney C Class Breakdown Tram – HO

Sydney C Class Breakdown Tram

Here is a 1:87 model of a Sydney C class tram.

The prototype is the former Sydney break down tram 56s which for many years was attached to Fort Macquarie Depot (Now the site of the Sydney Opera House). Notice the 6 window configuration of this tram. 56s was numbered 12 in passenger service.

I have used official Randwick Workshops plans in the design of this model.

Trolley Pole – I use trolley poles supplied by Brian Weisman (Jason’s Brass Poles). His service is excellent and ships to Australia quite fast. Send him an email at brianweisman@hotmail.com and ask for suitable HO trolley poles for your model. They are well priced too.

Decals – I have had a wonderful set of Sydney Tramway number decals made up. You can find out more from this link: Sydney Tramway Decals
