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.

After D.C. streetcar service ended in 1962, this 1937 model, formerly used on a 14th and Colorado line, went to a department store in Texas, which used it to transport customers to and from a satellite parking lot. It was retrieved and donated to the museum in 1970.
