All aboard as the Issaquah Valley Trolley hosts a community open house.
Learn more about future trolley service in Issaquah and volunteer opportunities. The open house is 7 p.m. July 23, 2013, at the Issaquah Train Depot, 150 First Ave. N.E. The event is free and open to the public.
Stop by to see displays and videos about Issaquah Valley Trolley Car No. 519, and the history of the trolley project. The event also includes speakers and a Q&A session.
Streetcar enthusiasts interested in volunteer opportunities can learn how to become motormen, conductors and station agents. Help is also needed for maintaining equipment, fundraising, event planning and more.
Volunteer training will start this fall. Issaquah Valley Trolley is an all-volunteer operation.
The trolley is scheduled to go into service Aug. 10, 2013. A celebration will take place at 11 a.m., and rides for the public will start at 1 p.m.
Once the trolley enters regular operation, the car will depart from the depot from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the summer and fall.
A project of the Issaquah History Museums, Issaquah Valley Trolley’s mission is to help interpret the history of our community and to attract visitors to the depot and Gilman Town Hall museums, and to Olde Town.
