Dockline Tram - An Award-Winning Tramway !

Well deserved acclaim from the NZ Rail Industry for our own tramway at the 2017 Conference of the Federation of Rail Organisations of New Zealand held over Queens Birthday Weekend in Dunedin.

The conference is attended by reps from all the member rail and heritage tramway operators in New Zealand in an organisation called FRONZ - Federation of Rail Organisations of New Zealand. The conference is sponsored by NZ's Rail Regulator, the NZTA who have a big presence at each year's conference.

Auckland Dockline Tram took out TWO of the 6 or so awards made over various categories.

1) Tramway Restoration Award - for the refurbishment of our former Melbourne SW6 class tram No.881. The work of Clinton Pearce and his assistant David Aperahama-Moses being highly praised and recognised.

2) The NZTA Safety Initiative Award - for the work our Operations Manager did in introducing changes and new safety initiatives following his research into the three disastrous fires on former Melbourne trams running on a heritage tramway in Memphis USA.

Below are images of Tram No.881 and Tramway Operations Manager James Duncan (pictured left) with NZTA representatives at the FRONZ Awards Presentation. Images thanks to David Maciulaitis.
