Nelson BC – Last night Nelson experienced the storm of the year, decade, century as trees all over Nelson were blown over.  Power in the City was out for most of the night, but it was the devastation in Lakeside Park that has hurt us most.

There is a tree down on the Car Barn, there is no power and about a dozen trees all over Lakeside have fallen.  We still need to asses the damage to the wires and also see if there are any trees down along the tracks.

#1 Streetcar #23 will not be running today (Tuesday June 30TH) and we will update the web and Facebook when we are up and running.

#2 Grab your gloves and come on down to the park.  Yep we need some help getting cleaned up after the storm and could use help.

We will keep you updated and let you know our progress by the end of today.

See you under the trees….on the rails.

Happy Father’s Day – Free Dads and Kids

On behalf of the Nelson Electric Tramway Society we would like to wish you the very best

this Father’s Day by inviting all Dads and Kids for a free ride this Sunday June 21st.

You can also get a tour of the Car Barn and check out the new displays in the Museum.  The new attraction that the Streetcar Car Barn Tours and Museum brings makes an excellent addition to a ride along the water front from downtown to Lakeside Park.

We look forward to welcoming all Dads and Kids on board for a free ride this Father’s Day Sunday June 21st.

The Trolley will be running from 11:00 am to 4:30 pm and the Museum will be open around noon and until Walt Shuts her down….(4pm-ish)

Also stay tuned – July 1st The Nelson and District Credit Union has sponsored free rides for the entire day and the Tramway Society are planning a big display in the Car Barn and the Museum.

See you on the Rails
