Fall Festival of Trolleys, Saturday, October 5

Join us at the Rockhill Trolley Museum this Saturday, October 5, 2019, for the Fall Festival of Trolleys!

Ride and photograph trolleys that are rarely run for the public, including the famous Electroliner, also called the Liberty Liner, a 4-part articulated, high speed, train-trolley built in 1941!

Or ride our big, red 2-part articulated light rail train-trolley, built in Germany in 1982 for the San Diego Trolley system.

Other cars operating include the P&W “Bullet” car, PCC cars and a variety of old fashioned wooden trolleys. Take a ride through the countryside and enjoy the Fall foliage along the old Shade Gap Branch of the East Broad Top Railroad, past the ruins of the Rockhill Iron Furnace, to the Blacklog Narrows and back.

All tickets are multi-ride:

$10 for adults
$6 for children 2-12
under 2 is free

After your ride, check out the Museum Store, the restoration workshop, the carbarns and the Picnic Pavilion. If you can’t make this spectacular day, there are even more trolley events every weekend in October!
