that they are going to get it runny 7 days a weeks starting now!
The Streetcar Museum is located in the Trolley Barn at Lakeside park – hours of operation will be from noon to 4pm for tours and group bookings.
Our volunteers have been getting lots of donations for the museum but we we still have plenty of room. We even have room for volunteers if you are looking to help. “There are plenty of fun projects that we could use help with.” says NETS President Walt Laurie, ” Just come on down any day of the week, phone us first, but if you don’t get us – look for Streetcar #23, they will know what is going on, where we are and also be able to take a message”
The Museum is by donation and does have a fun gift shop with Nelson Streetcar souvenirs. Come on by the Trolley Barn in Lakeside Park behind the Tennis courts beside the rowing club.
See you on the Rails and In the Museum!
2015 Streetcar Season NOW OPEN (well starting this Friday)
The tracks are clean, the drivers are excited and we are ready to roll for our 2015 Season. Streetcar#23 will be in full time operation 7 days a week starting this Friday May 15th from 11am to 4:30pm.
This year the Rotary Conference in Nelson got a sneak peak at some of this years specialty charters, including excerpts from the Haunted Heritage Tour
This year promises to be the most exciting yet as there are going to be more specialty tours, family fun events and community fundraisers. A schedule of our special events will be posted ASAP.
You will definitely want to check out our New Museum that will be in open this Friday and on weekends while we are in operation(we also might be open some weekdays), exactly what times and dates you ask?…good question, but we don’t know yet…we are planning a soft opening of the museum this Friday and are getting our displays and tours in order. We will keep you informed to specific dates and times as we figure them out. We are planning a big grande opening celebration in early August.
We could use your help, if you would like to volunteer for Museum, the Barn or the Streetcar, come on down and meet our crew and sign up.
If you have any Trolley treasures in your basement and would like to see them displayed in our museum, we would be more them happy to help make that happen.
We look forward to seeing on the rails!
