Thanks, Gerold. 

I know "Maximum Traction" was used by Brill.  

Anyone else ?

Checked various Hedley Doyle and double deck cars.

Seems all were built by Brill.


Here is a nice postcard,

although the colors are wrong:

Nope. 

All I get is the quote from '2001' ... 


" Sorry, Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that "  


Regards, Dave

I pretty much know the source of the cards in my collection.
 

But the few I have from this locale,

have me wondering where I collected them. 

:Crazy:

Hi Dave,

Possibly from a museum shop ?
As a former Sales Manager at a narrow gauge railway museum,
I was always on the lookout for related stuff that could be for sale on our site.

There were several manufacturers in Australia in both the general souvenir,
and railway-specific souvenirs who were producing postcards over many years.

The details of who printed that postcard should be on the back.
With a bit of luck they may be still printing postcards,
and may be contactable to find out if they are doing other trams.

While their businesses were built around selling postcards by the 100's,
they might be amenable to selling one's or two's of each tram postcard,
or maybe they can refer you to organisations that they have sold to,
who can or do sell individual tram postcards.

It will probably be another month or so,
before I might be able to get to my local tramway museum.
I've just checked with one of their members.
They do sell postcards in their shop although they don't have an online store.

Their contact details are:

Mitch Skillcorn, enquiriesATsydneytramwaymuseum.com.au (replace the AT with @).
He should be able to get someone to contact you,
with the different postcards available for sale and pricing if posted as a bundle.

At present all museums are closed locally,
so please don't expect an instant definitive answer on cost and availability.

The museum website is at https://www.sydneytramwaymuseum.com.au/
Don't forget to check out the Fleet and Workshop tabs,
under "Enthusiasts' Corner" on the website.

This video should give you some feel for what is there
