Exhibit - Tram 141

Hobart Municipal Tramways tram number 141 was built in 1952, and was the second last tram built for the Hobart system. It ran for just eight years before the system closed in 1960, following which all the trams were disposed of. Tram 141 was donated complete by the Metropolitan Transport Trust to the museum. For many years the tram was stored in the Hobart railway roundhouse until it was moved by rail to the museum site in April 1979.

Although the tram is operational, the museum has no overhead wires erected and the tram is on static display only.
