San Diego LRV #1019


A major milestone has been accomplished – Rockhill trolley museum has become the first museum on the east coast to operate a modern light rail vehicle – but additional financial support is needed!

At 7:20PM on Thursday, June 26, 2014, Rockhill Trolley Museum became the first museum on the East Coast of the United States to operate a modern light rail vehicle. Newly acquired San Diego Trolley #1019 operated under its own power one week after it was delivered the museum and reassembled by a team of volunteers and professional mechanics.

Even with the tremendous assistance received to date, the museum very much needs additional financial contributions to repay funds borrowed to complete the costs of transportation from San Diego, as well as to support the costs of operating and maintaining a vehicle unlike any other in the museum collection.

Why financially support a car like this? Because for today’s youth, who will be our future visitors, volunteers, and members, this is the type of trolley they are familiar with, like previous generations were with older cars. The
story of the trolley car did not end in the 1940s!
