Como tram barn project on track

News Update 14 August 2020
Building works Tram

The Como tram barn project is progressing well, with construction expected to be completed by the end of September.

The building will house a faithfully restored B class tram engine that operated along Mends Street and Labouchere Road between 1922 and 1950.

The tram barn is being built at the entrance to Windsor Park, east of Heritage House, close to the original tram line.

The project is a collaboration between the City, South Perth Historical Society and Perth Electric Tramways Society.

The tram was found in a Kelmscott backyard, before being lovingly restored by volunteers from Perth Electric Tramways.

The tram barn is being built from masonry and glazing, with bi-fold doors allowing people to move freely throughout the building and the tram.

The City will provide updates as the project progresses. For more information follow the City’s social channels or visit our website.
