Nice trolley ride but the site is full of semi-abandoned trains, buses and tram cars, witch gives it a "dumpy" look...Needs work.

Certainly we need more storage capacity to house the collection. We are working on it! We are expanding an existing building, and that is likely to be followed by fund-raising to build another storage barn. Thanks for visiting and glad you enjoyed your ride.

Great Trolly Car Ride back in time. We rode on a restored Trolly on about a two mile track. A little off the interstate, but well worth the side stop.

Take a short ride on an operating trolley car. Then, visit several satellite buildings where additional trolley cars are displayed or are under active restoration. One other building housed a massive model railroad in operation.

I wonder if you intended to review a different trolley museum. Seashore Trolley Museum (in Kennebunkport, Maine) offers quite a long ride on operating trolleys, and we do not have a MODEL railroad in operation.

We G-parents always take them on an afternoon excursion that’s filled with fun and old-dangled transportation. They ring the bells and blow the horns and have fun with the entertaining staff. Even we have fun and that’s the best part!

Just a great experience! The conductors were super friendly and knowledgeable. The grounds are well kept and everything is in easy walking distance. If you're around Kennebunkport, go to the Seashore Trolley Museum.
