Largest Electric Railway Museum in the World

Illuminated Cars - Largest Electric Railway Museum in the World

Cars spanning decades of electric railway technology

As the largest Electric Railway Museum in the world our collection includes vehicles from almost every major city in the United States that had streetcar systems. The Museum also features trolleys from many other cities across the globe. Part of our mission is to provide samples of how generations past moved about for work, school and leisure and to show the dedicated craftsmanship put forth to construct these workhorse vehicles.
