The Mt Perry Men’s Shed and the MPCDB are very excited to finally have a date for the arrival of the Melbourne tram.

On July the 30th, tram 807 will be craned out of the VicTrack Newport workshops and onto the low loader that will carry it on its long journey to Mt Perry. The tram will arrive here on Monday the 5th of August and the following day, two cranes will lift the old girl onto the prepared concrete pad and rails, outside the Flora St Men’s Shed.

There is expected to be considerable media attention for this historic event, and it would be great to see as many members of the local community there (on the 6th) to show their support.
