Bendigo Duncan & Fraser 17
Built in Adelaide by Duncan & Fraser in 1913 this tram operated in Bendigo as one of two "Summer trams" until 1953, when it was converted to a track cleaning car. In its new roll it had a crash with its replacement and remained out of use until the Trust took over the system and the damaged sections were removed rendering the tram operable again until withdrawal for rebuilding in 1975. In 1978 the tram was taken to Melbourne to take part in the Australia Day Cavalcade of Transport along Spencer Street. A re-build of the body and truck was completed in time for the centenary of electric operation of the Ballarat Tramways in 2005. The picture was taken during a visit in November 2013.

Bendigo Brill car 30
Built in Philadelphia USA by Brill in 1925, this car first served Adelaide as their number 301. In 1936 it passed to Geelong Tramways in 1936 where it lost the number one from its fleet number. Retaining fleet number 30 it moved on to Bendigo in 1947 where it was placed in storage in the paint shop and used for spare parts for similar trams. It ventually went into service in the city when identical tram 27 suffered accident damage, and with some bits from 27, 30 took to the tracks at last. It was one of four trams to inaugurate the "Talking Tram" service in the city in September 1972.

Bendigo Duncan & Frasr car 19
World War One delayed the delivery of the Duncan & Fraser tram to Hawthorn Tramways in Melbourne. It soon moved on to Footscray Tramways in 1919, but did not operate for them due to a lack of power supply. Ultimately it joined the M&MTB as California combination M class 185. It arrived with Bendigo Tramways in 1935 and was converted to one-man configuration as car 19. The tram is now part of the "Talking Tram" fleet.
