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!

This Sunday April 12th at 7am, we are calling on all volunteers to come on down to the Mall Parking lot to help clean up the rails. Meet us at the Save on Foods end of the mall, be prepared to get dirty, bring gloves and dress warm.

Cleaning the Tracks for Streetcar#23Also you can take the time to sign up for this year’s training sessions happening April 15th or for one of our many opportunities, including our new museum which will be open regular hours this season.
