Antique Trolley

While visiting Shelburne Falls, we stopped up at the Trolley Museum. A trolley line ran until 1928 and then the trolleys were sold for salvage. This trolley car was bought by a local farmer. He wanted it because his father courted his mother in it. It sat in his fields until 1990 when a local group bought and restored it. This was the beginning of the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum. It runs on a quarter mile (half a kilometer) track for people visiting the museum. We found this and several other photo worthy subjects at the museum. More to come…

      Hello Soheir:
      Thank you so much.
      I think trams like this were very common in many parts of the world.
      They did a beautiful job restoring it. They had some other train cars that I will show in future days.
      I hope all is well with you.
      Have a great day.
      Cheers =)

      Thank you so much Alex…I found that the parts and details were what made the trolley/tram delightful. The museum had wonderful images of the restoration process. The volunteers (there are no paid staff, only volunteers) took great care in the restoration. Cheers =)

      Hello Himali: It gets frustrating when our technology doesn’t work. Sorry, I couldn’t find the comments in spam either. I guess in the words of Frozen “Let It Go”. I’m glad you liked the museum and story. It is a pretty awesome story. I hope that you’re having a great day. Cheers =)
