National Trolley Festival July 27, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

Sat July 27, 2019

With parades running at 11:30AM and 2PM, this event showcases some of our collection in motion and many of these cars aren’t normally seen running for the public! Experience the golden age of transportation as trolley cars from the turn of the last century parade by. Watch the “work horses” of the US streetcar era such as antique repair, emergency and snow plows rumble past. Feel the awe-inspiring power of vintage subway equipment pass through.

This once a year event provides all day photo ops and rail art-in-motion parades. Parades will include a short narration on each vehicle and is certain to please history buffs, photographers and rail fans young and old. Reservations aren’t required, but you should plan on arriving ½ hour early for the start of each parade.
