  • I never knew how important the trolley system was in urban America. The short film and the many trolleys on display were impressive. Worth the trip.

  • If you're into vintage railroads and trolleys, this place isbfor you. Exit 185 of Interstate 81. Plenty of parking, be prepared to take lots of pictures and spend the day at Steamtown.
