Loftus Tramshed


I always saw photos of the Glebe tram shed and wanted to go there, the graffiti covered trains and trams lurking in a giant warehouse was a photographers dream, but unfortunately when I finally got around to it, my dreams were shattered. The place was fenced off and swarming with workers and security guards, and even a sign warning of security dogs.

It wasn't until I randomly stumbled across the tram shed in Loftus while doing a photo shoot in the nearby bush, that I realised my dreams of shooting trams in their retired state was still alive. We were trekking through the bush to a run down house you could see from the highway when we stumbled across a huge green shed complete with an old rusty tow truck sitting out the front. I pulled one of the giant doors open and peeked inside, and a huge smile instantly grew across my face. I was greeted by trams and buses of all ages, covered in graffiti and some still with seats and fittings intact.

I'm not sure of the exact purpose of this shed, but I'm guessing it has something to do with the tram museum across the highway, and maybe it was used to store old, retired trams and buses. It seems now they have been forgotten and this will be their final resting place. From my knowledge (hopefully someone can prove me wrong), but this is one of the last places to see these retired, beautiful old trams.
It is tightly packed on the right hand side, and the light is fairly dim, but on the left there is some space to work with and when you open the doors, you get a bit more light inside.
I loved this place so much I had my wedding photos there last year!

WHAT: An old shed housing old trams and buses. The exact use I do not know, but am guessing they were put here as storage, or to be forgotten about.

ACCESS - EASY: The place is easy to access and get into, it couldn't be much easier. Holes in fences you could nearly drive a car through and open doors of the shed.

SECURITY - LOW: The only people I have seen here are other photographers and urban explorers, a few graffiti artists and some bush walkers, none which have ever raised any alarms.

INTEREST - 7/10: For Australian standards, it's good. It's not as big as Glebe was, but there are some beautiful trams and buses inside, and the decrepit state of the building is a site as well. Not to mention the few old cars scattered around the outside of the shed as well and a few other random buildings neighbouring the shed.

ALONE OR WITH A FRIEND: Either. I have been here numerous times by myself and its fine. And I have also been with a 10 person bridal party, and it was fun and a large group drew no unwanted attention.

DANGERS: The usual dangers you'd find in these kind of places, rusty objects, broken glass and maybe some snakes in the outside long grass in summer, but on a whole its pretty safe.

  1. Hey mate, I'm a fellow urban explorer and photographer, I live nearby this location & have been here and everywhere else multiple times. Where abouts are you based? I'm always keen to find some other people interested in urbex and go out exploring together.

    Cheers

  4. Hey mate, Great photographs of the trams. Shame it's easy to break in; easy target for vandals and such. What I can actually tell you now is that you are correct in saying that this tram shed has to do with something with the museum across the road: this shed was their original site from 1965-1988 until they moved, and yes, recently they have been reusing this place for some of their reserve collection on account of lack of space. In fact, they have multiple trams stored in other places as well, from Cessnock to Bendigo and so forth. What you are incorrect in saying is that this is the final resting place for these trams, on the contrary, this is only temporary storage until the museum can find the funds available to restore these trams to their former glory. For example, one of the trams - the crossbench N car with the tin roof on it - is a duplicate of an existing tram already running at the museum and they hope to restore this as another example (they left the roof on the tram because the roof leaks badly), another tram - the one that says 432 on the front - is a Melbourne W2 tram; an earlier form of the classic trams you see in the city today. It was intended that this tram would restored for disabled access, but funding was stopped and the project is on hold. Some of the others, like the Sydney R corridor trams are hoped to be restored for other tram operations outside the museum, the little rusted K tram is only the second last one of it's kind (the other is at the museum) and C tram might be restored to it's former works vehicle configuration. And the buses... I'll be honest I'm not sure what the buses are for, I don't even know if the museum owns them.

    Hope this answers your questions, and as a side note, I understand the Daily Telegraph did an article on this shed not to long ago and they actually interviewed you and the head of the museum, Howard Clark. However, they were not satisfied with how the story turned out, saying on their facebook page: "By now, everyone has probably seen the disgraceful photo's published in Sydney's Daily Telegraph. Of course, it is typical tabloid journalism; it is all about sensationalising the bad images and neglecting the toil, hard work and achievements of our Museum.
    With money and time, we can restore these old trams, but every time a vandal or some idiot wanting to do graffiti BREAKS IN to the compound, they cost us more money because we continually have to repair fences and repair holes they cut in the shed and then there is the additional cost in repairing and repainting the trams.
    Don't feel sorry for the trams - give us some donations so we can do something about it. Donations to the Tramway Museum are tax deductible and we can send you receipts for your donation. Please send your donation to P.O.Box 103, Sutherland NSW 1499. Any amount is welcome - You can make a difference! Please help us now."

    If you would like to see these trams protected, you can donate. I understand the museum wishes to upgrade the security in the compound and install power and water sprinklers, mostly for protection from bushfire and arson should a scenario occur.

  5. The colour is Poseidon from Bendigo Woollen mills. I am really loving Bendigo wool to knit with it is so lovely and hardly shows any inaccuracy in tension.
    Though I’d like to think I was becoming a better knitter, I think in reality Bendigo wool is just that good.

  6. Please visit us at the museum over the road, we are open to the public on Wednesdays and Sundays. We have approx. 40 trams from Aust. and the rest of the world.

    1. Hi I'm the one who wrote that reply last time and I don't I gave you enough information. You can easily catch a train to Loftus, you don't need a car at all. That was my mistake. The station is just down the road from the shed. It's on the Princes Highway so you need to run across several lanes of traffic. There are plenty of breaks and a grassy island in the middle but you still need to be careful. Once you get across you walk 100m or so up the road until you come to a broken fence and the shed is pretty much as you walk in. Hope this helps.

  9. Thinking of heading here soon. Just wondering if there are generally a lot of people in/around the location? Cheers.

  13. Just want to let everyone know. I visited the location early November and was very sad to see it had been BURNT DOWN!!!
    there's barely anything left sadly. It's still accessible, but there is a fence around it now but there is an opening in the back. However due to its condition I highly recommend nobody enters, it's very dangerous now, metal shards everywhere and I couldn't even say what else. But still a good place for external photographs

But there is a tram depot in newtown. Big late 19th century building, still standing. Hasn't been touched. Unfortunately it's extremely well secured.
