2024 Annual Meeting

April 27

Each year, New England Electric Railway Historical Society (doing business as Seashore Trolley Museum and the National Streetcar Museum at Lowell) members join together to discuss the highlights of the previous year, hear from Museum leaders, elect new Trustees, and celebrate our successes and collaborative spirit.
Join us for this year’s Annual Meeting, to be held in-person at Seashore on Saturday, April 27. In addition to our official meetings, we have a great day of fun activities and fellowship planned, including a sneak peak of the Maine Central Model Railroad and our 12th Annual Volunteers & Donors Appreciation Dinner. Attend just the activities you are interested in or stay for the full day. This event is open to all members and their families.
