Guest Motorman Day

June 18 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm EDT

Here’s your chance to take control of a real antique trolley car, rapid transit car, or trolley work equipment!  

This one hour experience starts with brief training about the operations of the railway and how the equipment you will operate functions. Under the guidance of your instructor, you then get a chance to take the controls! 

Your admission to this private event also gives you 5 passes for friends and family who will get to watch you behind the controller (see restrictions below*).  There’s plenty of photo ops and you’ll also receive a memento for your visit.  This is a great gift idea for any rail enthusiast. 

This month – Trolley work equipment and subway cars are available to operate.  Please note that work equipment and heavy equipment may require climbing, stooping or bending as part of operation.    

Pre-registration is required, we can’t accept walk-in registrations for this event.   

* Due to cab size restrictions, guests are not allowed on work equipment or heavy equipment.
