Be a Motorman Program

Visit - seashore trolley logo

The Be A Motorman Program at the Seashore Trolley Museum provides the opportunity for you to operate a real antique streetcar. After a brief overview of how a streetcar works and how to operate it, one of our instructors will guide you as you operate a streetcar out on our two-mile rail line. Seashore is the only place in the region where you can live your dream of actually operating a fully restored, vintage streetcar.

Your immediate family is invited to be with you as memories are created that will last a lifetime.

Minimum Requirements
Participants must be at least 18 years old. This will ensure that the streetcar can be operated in a safe manner under the instructor’s guidance. During the pandemic, participants must be fully vaccinated to participate in our BAM program. Due to the close proximity the BAM participants and our crew stand, masks are required during the BAM experience.

The Be A Motorman Program experience is $100.00 per trip.

We are currently scheduling BAM experiences on Wednesdays-Sundays between our 12:20 and 3:20 rides.

The program fee includes admission to the Museum for the student only.  Regular admission prices apply to those accompanying the student.
