Streetcar, Trolley and Railway Museums

  • Halton County Radial Railway. Ontario's Operating Streetcar & Electric Railway Museum 13629 Guelph Line, Milton, Ontario, Canada

  • Canadian Railroad Historical Association Museum. Delson, Quebec. Museum of Street cars and Trains.

  • The Seashore Trolley Museum. A Living History of Public Transportation Home of The National Collection of American Streetcars. Kennebunkport, Maine.

  • Edmonton Radial Railway Society The ERRS is one of Canada's fully operational heritage street railways. It operates streetcars in Fort Edmonton Park and in Old Strathcona, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The information in the following pages will satisfy both, the railfan and the inquisitive mind looking for information on our past! We are always open for suggestions on how to improve our site.

  • Trolley Cars Dot Com. We are primarily interested in trolleycars (streetcars, trams, electric light rail, PCCs, traction...) here on Trolley Cars Dot Com, but we do offer links to general transit and transportation sites, especially museums and railroad sites.

  • TROLLEYSTOP.COM This site has been developed as a resource, for students and others, who are unfamiliar with the important role the street railway industry, and the electric trolley, played in the everyday lives of the vast majority of Americans, during the period of it's greatest popularity, from 1890 to 1930. Also included, is the progress of the street railway industry, from the 1930's to the present (1999).

  • The National Capital Trolley Museum was founded in 1959 after the abandonment of streetcar service in the District of Columbia had become a certainty. The Museum opened to the public in 1969 at its present location in Northwest Branch Park in Montgomery County, Maryland.

  • Trolley Museum of New York. The Trolley Museum of New York is a non-profit educational museum founded in 1955. The goals of the museum are to offer a ride to the public and through exhibits and educational programs to share the rich history of rail transportation and the role it played in the Hudson Valley region.

  • South Simcoe Railway Heritage Corp. Excursions depart from the South Simcoe Railway station in downtown Tottenham, 20 km west of Highway 400 on Highway 9, just 50 minutes north of Toronto.

  • The Smiths Falls Railway Museum of Eastern Ontario. Located at 90 William St., Smiths Falls, Ontario. Housed in a former Canadian Northern Railway Station built in 1914, we have 5 acres of things to see and do!
