[ARCHIVED] - Now Boarding: Issaquah Trolley Rides Start -

The historic Issaquah Valley Trolley is now boarding.

Head to the Issaquah Train Depot, 150 First Ave. N.E. as the trolley starts offering rides to the public at 1 p.m. Aug. 10, 2013. A program and rides for invited guests is scheduled to start at 11 a.m.

The trolley fare is by open donation. Riders receive a ticket entitling them to the ride, plus admission to the Depot Museum, Gilman Town Hall Museum and historic jail. Issaquah History Museums members ride for free.

Starting Aug. 11, 2013, the streetcar is scheduled to depart from the depot on Saturdays and Sundays, 11 a.m.-3 p.m., through the summer and fall, weather permitting.

Over the course track from the depot to the East Fork of Issaquah Creek and back, riders can experience what it was like to travel from Issaquah by rail in the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Listen as conductors entertain guests with stories about Issaquah. The frontier coalmining, farming and logging outpost started to grow after the Seattle Lake Shore & Eastern Railway came to town in 1888.

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.
