Streetcar #23, being 116 years old is in constant need of attention to ensure that it operates in a safe manner. Our volunteers do a great job of maintaining the car but the cost of manufacturing replacement and spare parts takes a toll on our finances. Our electrical and track infrastructure is over 30 years old which also necessitates more resources as the years roll on.

If you cannot donate your time, please consider making a cash donation to ensure that Streetcar #23, part of Nelson’s character and heritage, is preserved and accessible for years to come.

Methods of payment:

Cheque or Money Order payable to Nelson Electric Tramway Society, Box 602, Nelson, BC V1L 5R4
