Tram 361 Model | Glenelg Bay Discovery Centre

A teenage LEGO enthusiast has brought Tram 361 back to Glenelg, in model form. His creation now has a permanent home at Glenelg’s Bay Discovery Centre.

Jackson Hefford, a passionate teen about trams and everything transport since he was three years old, was able to bring his vision to life using a Holdfast Bay Community Grant. The build took about 12 hours to complete, but the whole process took around nine months from the initial idea to the finished product.

Jackson designed the model on his computer and then went to BrickLink website to source the 1,700 LEGO bricks for the build – some of which came from overseas.

The majority of bricks are in the tram, which includes interior details including seats, and the exterior is almost the exact colour of the old red rattler trams.

Where to find the display:

The creation can be found at the Bay Discovery Centre museum on the first floor next to the front façade of H Type Tram 351.

Entry to the Bay Discovery Centre is by gold coin donation.

Opening Hours:

  • Open daily from 10am to 4pm
  • Closed Christmas Day and Good Friday
