Historic Electric Traction (HET) is a non-profit established in 1997 to assist Sydney Trains in the preservation of State-owned vintage electric trains in working condition. HET operates closely with Sydney Trains under custodial agreements through Transport Heritage, using volunteer labour supplied by generous railway enthusiasts. Our dedicated volunteers allow HET to effectively provide 'trafficable' carriages to Sydney Trains, enabling them to certify and operate the cars, rather than hidden static exhibits
Welcome to the all new Historic Electric Traction (HET) website. Here you will find information about us, and the preservation of electric passenger trains through regular updates and news. We hope to see you on board soon!
