Here is our calendar of events.
See you on the rails!
Dad’s ride the streetcar for free
Canada Day, The Nelson and District Credit Union sponsors the Streetcar for the day so everyone rides for free. We are also extending the running hours from 11am to Very Late (around 8pm well past our bed time)
The Food Drive has been named “FILL THE BIRNEY CAR” and that is the goal every year, to get enough food to fill every seat in the Birney Car 400. Each donation would permit the Donor to unlimited free Streetcar 23 rides, as well as an admission into our newly constructed Museum and the chance to win some fabulous prizes donated by local businesses. Even though the Streetcar may not be running that day, they encourage people to make their way to the Trolley Barn Museum for an extra special museum tour and a token for a free ride at a later date.
This year the Fill the Birney Car will be on Saturday October 1st from 10am to 5pm. We look forward to seeing you there on the rails or at the Barn.
Haunted Heritage Tour Streetcar#23 Returns October 15th 2016
October is the return of the popular Haunted Heritage Tour Streetcar#23 where guest are treated to a tour of Nelson’s less talked about haunted history. This year we have added more stops and more stories. Happening Saturday October 15, with two special runs at 4pm and 5:30pm, it is one of the best ways to enjoy Streetcar#23 before she is put to rest for the season. Partial proceeds from these tours go to benefit the Nelson Electric Tramway Society (NETS), a wholly volunteer run organization.
To get tickets or make reservations for the tours contact the Railway Visitors Centre in Nelson at 250.352.3433. To find out more about the League and their future activities check them out on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/NelsonParanormalLeague/ .
