What exactly is a street car (trolley) and how is it different from a train?
Where did trolleys travel in our area?
Why did passengers eventually stop riding trolleys?

Join us to explore the history of trolleys in our region and beyond. Learn how a trolley works, from the controller to the brakes. Then construct your own electrically powered trolley and build a network of tracks with your friends.

All aboard!
