Floral Tram 2019
Re-imagining the decorated trams of the 1930s
In 1938 and 1939 the SEC decorated a tram for the Ballarat Floral Festival. Now after an absence of 80 years the Floral tram will return for the 2019 Ballarat Begonia Festival. The original trams were decorated with waxed paper flowers, but next year the tram will be festooned with flowers made from recycled plastics. Tram 661, a large double bogie tram, has been selected for the honour, and it is going to need a lot of flowers.
