Museum In Motion

August 14, 2021 @ 10:30 am - 4:30 pm EDT

The Shore Line Trolley Museum will be holding its annual Museum In Motion Festival on Saturday,  August 14 from 11:00AM – 4:30PM.  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 snowplows rumble past. Feel the awe-inspiring power of vintage subway equipment. 

This once-a-year event provides all day photo ops and rail art-in-motion parade at 1:00PM. The parade will include a short narration on each vehicle and is certain to please history buffs, photographers, and rail fans young and old.    

Make a day of this event.  Chat with museum volunteers, experts in the field of mechanical and curatorial restoration and learn how you too can get involved with the oldest continuously running suburban street railway in the U.S.A.   

Bluegrass bands Trolley Creek and Breakwater Light will be performing all day, food will be provided by D&S Hot Dogs and Catering and Sully’s Good Humor.  Tickets are $15 – general admission.  No charge for children under 2
