The Christchurch tramway system was an extensive network in Christchurch, New Zealand, with steam and horse trams from 1882. Electric trams ran from 1905 to 1954, when the last line from Cashmere to Papanui was replaced by buses. A loop track was reopened in the central city in 1995 as a tourist attraction. The track is standard gauge. Up to seven tram cars are currently in operation daily on the heritage circuit, providing both daytime transport services and a Restaurant during evening hours. The tram circuit was closed in 2011 following the Christchurch earthquake, and was re-opened on a shortened loop in November 2013 before the full heritage loop was re-opened in November 2014.
