Visit

Have you ever ridden a real trolley car and heard the ting-ting of the trolley bell, the growl of the gears, and the ticka-ticka-ticka of the air compressor?

Visitors to the Rockhill Trolley Museum take a step back in time, to when many American towns and cities offered inexpensive and convenient transportation using electric trolleys.

Visitors

Visitors of all ages enjoy visiting the Rockhill Trolley Museum!

Our collection has several operational trolleys, including an open car, high-speed interurban cars, fascinating maintenance-of-way cars, and two PCC Cars, and our talented volunteers are always working on restoring more cars in our shops.

While enjoying a leisurely ride through the scenic countryside, you and your family can learn about trolleys and how generations of Americans before ours got around.

Directions in Narrative Format

Following are Directions to the Museum from various regions, in narrative format:

PA Turnpike (I-76) Exit 189 “Willow Hill” (from Philadelphia, Harrisburg)

From the exit, turn left onto PA 75. At the blinking light in Spring Run, turn left onto PA 641. Follow PA 641 to its end at Shade Gap. Turn right on US 522 to the only traffic light in Orbisonia. (In Orbisonia, 522 is Ridgely Street. Pizza Star is on the near-right corner and Community State Bank is on the far-left corner.) Turn left on PA 994. (In Orbisonia 994 is Elliot Street.) Cross the bridge over the Blacklog Creek and into Rockhill Furnace. (You are now on Meadow Street.) Pass Cummins Road on the left at the end of the bridge. (Cummins road provides automobile access for photographers for about a third of the trolley line.) Pass the Church of the Bretheren, the Rockhill Elementary School, and the Rockhill Furnace Post Office, all on your left. You will see the East Broad Top Railroad station ahead on your right but don’t go that far. Just beyond the post office cross one track only and turn left onto the gravel road just before the other tracks. You are here. The Meadow Street Trolley Platform and ticket booth are on your left.

From the East travel time is exactly the same as if you were to take Exit 201 (Blue Mountain), but instead of crossing the first mountain, you will tunnel under it, drive a bit faster but further, and pay a higher toll.

If you happen to find yourself continuing past Exit 189 (Willow Hill), you can take Exit 180 (Fort Littleton), but this adds about 20 minutes to your trip. See “From the West – Pennsylvania Turnpike – Exit 180” for directions to the museum from Exit 180.
