Tram Depot

The former Rozelle tram depot, located in Glebe, New South Wales, is the largest remaining tram depot in Sydney.

 

Constructed in 1904, it reached peak capacity of approximately 200 trams from 1918, until its closure in 1958. The depot now contains some of the last trams to have operated on Sydney's original tram network.

 

Over time the shed and trams have been heavily vandalized and covered in graffiti. It was recently announced the entire site had peen purchased to be redeveloped for medium density housing, so the future of the sheds and trams is unclear.
