The Tramway Historical Society Inc.


In 1993 the Society were asked by the City Council to supply Cars for the Tourist Tramway Loop in the centre of Christchurch. The Heritage Tramways Trust was set up to undertake the professional restoration of five vehicles to be leased to the City Council then on to the Tourist Tramway Operator – currently Christchurch Tramways Limited.

This has allowed greater progress to be made on restoration of the barn full of former holiday cottages and sheds acquired over the years.

The Heritage Tramways Trust is a body established by the Society pursuant to Clause 2.6 of the Rules. The Trust has its own Trust deed, copies of which can be viewed by doing a search on the following web site:   http://www.companies.govt.nz/cms/other-registered-entities/charitable-trusts. It is also available on request from the Secretary of the Society.
