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.
William Blackburn, a self-described "train buff" and 15-year museum volunteer, first came to the District in 1960. He was a 28-year-old government worker back then and rode the streetcars, but now he drives one. For museum hours, ride fares, and directions, visit dctrolley.org.
