Trolleys don’t run themselves, and neither do trolley museums! Like expansive trolley systems back in the day, our museum volunteers rely on special equipment to keep all aspects of the museum’s line in order: track and ballast, overhead wires, lineside poles, signalling, and more. Clearing snow from the streets in which the trolleys ran was the traction company’s job, and several types of snow-fighting equipment were commonly seen during the trolley era. The museum’s collection includes several examples of work cars. You might see some of these cars on exhibit, or actually at work on the museum’s own railway.
