Tramway Museum Society of Victoria

The Tramway Museum Society of Victoria was founded in 1962 in Victoria, Australia. Its aim is the preservation, restoration and operation of trams. It operates the Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre, located in Bylands, Victoria, between Wallan and Kilmore, as a tramway museum.

The museum houses a large and varied collection of trams from Melbourne, Ballarat, Bendigo and Adelaide, as well as preserved buses and other work vehicles. Electric trams operate along a 1km track, which was previously a part of the Heathcote Junction to Bendigo railway line.

Besides the electric tram line, the Bylands Tramway Heritage Centre also has a tramway electric supply substation, various buildings for the storage of unrestored trams, cable tram cars and motor vehicles. It also has a visitor centre and exhibition shed and workshop.
