Australian Electric Transport Museum, South Australia
The Australian Electric Transport Museum (AETM) is located at St Kilda, South Australia. The AETM has preserved a range of former Adelaide trams, trolleybuses, together with a bus. The AETM has also preserved a number of trams from Victoria, mostly chosen because they were originally constructed in Adelaide.
The museum is accessible by travelling north from Adelaide along highway A1, past Gepps Cross along the Port Wakefield Road and turning left at the St Kilda sign. They museum is normally open to the public on Sundays from 1 pm to 5 pm and is also open on Wednesdays.
The AETM's operating tramcar fleet is in excellent condition, as may be seen in the selection of photos of their tram fleet. The AETM have undertaken some very impressive restoration works on scrapped tram bodies recovered from properties after the trams were stripped of their electrical equipment.
AETM's Contact details are +618 8280 8188 (tel.) and +618 8280 8528 (fax), or email (temporary address): firstname.lastname@example.org. The AETM's postal address is GPO Box 2012, Adelaide, South Australia, 5001.
