Bulkhead panel from Sydney R1 Class tramcar

This is certainly unique, and genuine, from a pre-WWII  R1 Class tram thought to be built in the mid 1930s

Made of wood varnished with shellac. About 36 inches x 13 inches

It,  and another matching one,  was located above the sliding entrance door to the saloon from the vestibule.

I was intended to be hinged to give access to lighting controls. How it latched closed is not obvious.

In fair condition given its age. One hinge pin is missing, 

 

The item is probably best collected from the shop to avoid any damage in transit, it being an awkward large item

Destination box panel from Sydney R class tram 1884

Inside the drivers cab, a large box protruded carrying winder mechanism, lamps and desto blind. This cover panel allowed the driver to view the display without leaving the cab or opening the whole box. Missing are shutters to prevent light escaping and distracting the driver at night.   2 indicates the no 2 end of the car.   Since the cars were double ended it needed an expert eye to distinguish one end from the other.

The tram was built  12/12/1934

Destination box panel from Sydney R1 class tram car 2086

Inside the drivers cab, a large box protruded carrying winder mechanism, lamps and desto blind. This cover panel allowed the driver to view the display without leaving the cab or opening the whole box. The shutter to prevent light escaping and distracting the driver at night is still there but jammed. Some clever TLC would restore it.   2 indicates the no 2 end of the car.   Since the cars were double ended it needed an expert eye to distinguish one end from the other.

The tram was built fin the 1950s by Commonwealth Engineering. s
