So Long Zac!

Good bye to one of our amazing volunteers! Yesterday was Zac’s last shift as streetcar operator as he’s moving to Kelowna. Zac, we will miss you and your dedication to the streetcar! Happy trails, the best of luck and we’re pretty sure you’ll be back on board some day!

We Like Old Stuff!

Do you have neat stuff kicking around in your basement? The kids don’t want it and it’s too good to throw away? The Nelson Electric Tramway Society will consider donations of local memorabilia, preferably transportation-related. We also always are on the lookout for tools that we can use to keep our 113-year-old #23 operational! We’d really love a metal lathe with a minimum 6′ bed!!!

Pictured below are Denis Helbecque with his Dad’s old “Flexible Flyer” and Norm Facchina with his childhood tricyle. Both are on display in our streetcar museum at Lakeside Rotary Park. Big thanks to Norm and Denis for all the neat stuff they donated to the streetcar.
