Welcome

WELCOME ABOARD!

Situated along the lakefront, in beautiful, Nelson, BC lies a historical marvel.  Streetcar #23 is a fully functional streetcar that was once in use here in Nelson in the first half of the 20th century.  Once the backup streetcar for the defunct Nelson Street Railway, it has had a colourful history.

The Nelson Electric Tramway Society, along with The Chamber of Commerce, Royal Bank, and Selkirk College restored this Streetcar, and  the Society provides a scenic ride along Nelson’s waterfront.  The society is all volunteer driven, and our streetcar is one of Nelson’s most interesting attractions.

We invite you to come for a ride, and share in the wonderful history of the Queen’s City.  Young and old, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Check out our links at the top for more information on our streetcars, and the society.  Also, don’t forget to become a Fan on Facebook!
