The Leonora Tramway (1)

These pictures were taken at Leonora Gwalia Historical Museum. Gwalia was the site of a gold mine 4 km south of the outback town of Leonora, 230 km north of Kalgoorlie. The mine closed in 1963 and Gwalia was abandoned. More recently the former mine buildings have been used to accomodate a very comprehensive museum including the body Leonora's only electric tram which is in remarkably good condition. The museum has plans to restore the body as a static exhibit.
