Birney the cat
Come and meet our most popular staff member!
Birney joined our team in 2014, he is a rescue cat who now calls our Depot home.
Birney's job was to catch mice, but he has recently taken on the role of Tramways Superintendent.
When Birney isn't busy napping you will find him keeping an eye on our fleet of historic trams, greeting everyone who visits our workshop and posing for photographs.
Birney's iconic status was cemented when he had a children's book published about him (by a visitor to the Depot) which is stocked in our Gift Shop. You will also find a range of other gifts featuring Birney in our shop as well.
Birney leaves such an impression on our visitors that he regularly receives postcards and presents in the mail.
Birney loves to see photos of himself on social media, so make sure you tag @bendigotramways or #BendigoTramways in your photos.
Did you know that Birney is a type of tram? Of the thousands of Birney trams manufactured, we have the largest collection of these trams in the world!
Birney is proudly sponsored by PETstock, who supply everything he requires to remain happy and healthy into the future!
