Trolley Care Program

The Trolley Care program provides a fun, hands-on learning experience working on trolleys for those who are interested in the mechanical side of trolley cars and want to help maintain, repair, and restore trolleys. The program was first launched in 2016 and we are pleased to announce its return for the 2020 season.

The program will be held on select Saturdays from 8:30 AM to 1 PM (full schedule below). Lunch will be provided. We request that those 12-15 years of age be accompanied by an adult. For those under the age of 12, please contact us in advance. Please wear work clothes including closed toed shoes. Safety glasses and work gloves will be available, however, we encourage bringing your own, if you have them. Those who attended in 2016, 2018, or 2019 are welcomed to return for additional learning and experiences.

2020 Schedule and Topics*
