PMTT F No 46

PMTT F No 36 in Glenhuntly Road, Elsternwick, on the opening day of the Point Ormond line, 1913. Photograph from the TMSV collection.

This was one of two tramcars built to this design for the PMTT in 1912 by Duncan & Fraser. Originally numbered 36, shortly after delivery it was renumbered to 46, its old number being taken by the first of the E class maximum traction tramcars. It was unusual in that it was a centre aisle cross-bench summer tramcar. In late 1923, it was rebuilt as a closed combination car. It was removed from service in 1929 and the body sold.

No 46 is known to have been allocated to Malvern and Glenhuntly Depots during its 17 year career.

The body of this tramcar was recovered from a house in Mentone in 1982. The TMSV intends rebuilding this tramcar to original condition as PMTT No 46, utilising the Brill 21E truck obtained from A No 17, which was used as a stationary driver training car at the Driver Training School.
