About

Help restore old trolley cars and railroad equipment. Some of our trolleys date back to 1894. We restore cars from any condition to a historically accurate representation of its past. We also do routine maintenance and repair to our public fleet of trolley cars. Most activities are done on Saturdays. Expect to get dirty and have a good time. This is a good way for engineering majors to get hands-on experience. See our web page for current activities and photos of ongoing work: http://www.ct-trolley.org/news/restoration.php
