Starting July 1st the Walt Laurie Streetcar Museum will be open 7 days a week from noon to 3:00 pm. Come on down and see our collection of memorabilia and other interesting artifacts!
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.
September 6/19: The Mainland family, Kat (seated), and her parents Syd and Sandra from Australia enjoyed a ride on the streetcar and then toured our museum on a rainy Friday afternoon.
