We at NETS are so grateful to our local Rotary Club for their generous donation to assist in enhancing the access to our museum. The Walt Laurie Memorial Museum is located at the Nelson Electric Tramway Society’s car barn in Lakeside Rotary Park and plans are in place to build a ramp for easier access for those who use a wheelchair or scooter.

On Sunday, July 14, 2019, history was made in Nelson when, for the first time EVER, the streetcar was manned (hahahaha) by an all-woman team!! Pictured are Colleen and Lelainya, who drove the tram that day, and Lonnie was our museum volunteer!
