Transport historian Col Gilbertson and Glebe Society member, Philip Vergison, took us for a free trip down ‘The Glebe Point Line’ and the ‘Through Lines’. Beginning in the days of the steam trams and ending up with the adaptive re-use of the Tramsheds and the light rail today – another key achievement of the Glebe Society.

People were surprised to hear that we used to have a four minute service on Glebe Point Rd in peak hour and Saturday mornings. We also heard that the destination board used coloured images to help people with limited literacy. The ‘Glebe Desto Board’ was two red dots – which gave rise to the saying ‘made up like a Glebe Point Tram’.
