    Rockhampton operated its own network of steam trams in 1909. The trams operated for three decades and carried more than 40 million passengers. A local rail museum has restored one of the trams. Now the world's only operational Surrey steam tram lives at the Archer Park Rail Museum in Rockhampton.
