National Trolley Museum takes a historic view of railway travel

In a world of planes, trains and automobiles, it's nice to take a look at trollies--their slower, more scenic counterpart. The National Capital Trolley Museum allows visitors to take a look into the "heritage of electric and interurban railways of Washington, DC." Take a look.

Passengers had their tickets punched by driver Jim Hogan, who's volunteered at the museum for 32 years and used to ride the D.C. line as a young teenager. Not every streetcar here ran in the District, this 1971 model is from The Hague in the Netherlands.
