Trolley Poles – 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 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
