THE SALISBURY ROLLER STEAMS INTO SERVICE FOR THE
The Launceston Tramway Museum was delighted to have the Salisbury Steam Roller visiting from Redwater Creek, Sheffield, for the summer.
The Salisbury Steam Roller was built in Launceston in 1910 for the Launceston Municipal Council, and was used to lay the tracks for the trams that roamed the city from 1911 – 1952. In 1953 it again rolled into service, to seal over those same tram tracks.
The Launceston Tramway Museum includes the original tram workshop, where volunteers still actively restore trams. The workshop housed the Salisbury Steam Roller until early March 2016. Over the summer the roller steamed into service to relay tram tracks in the Inveresk Precinct, before returning to Redwater Creek for SteamFest 2016.
