The Electric City Trolley Station and Museum, Scranton
(4/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
The Electric City Trolley Museum is located in downtown Scranton, Pennsylvania, next to the Steamtown National Historic Site.The museum displays and operates restored trolleys and interurbans on former lines of the Lackawanna and Wyoming Valley Railroad, now owned by the government of Lackawanna County and operated by the Delaware-Lackawanna Railroad.In 2006, the museum opened a 2,000-foot extension connecting the county's trolley line from the Steamtown National Historic Site to a new station and trolley restoration facility next to PNC Field in Moosic, Pennsylvania. The trip, including a long tunnel, replicates a typical 1920's interurban ride. The new tracks and trolley barn are part of a $2 million project financed by capital funds from the county and the state. The barn has space for up to nine trolleys, allowing the county museum to spend more time working to bring defunct cars back to running order. It has a gallery where visitors can observe the repairs.ManagementThe Electric City Trolley Museum is owned by the Electric City Trolley Museum Association.

  • Took my nephew. He enjoyed the hands on exhibits and the video. The trolley rides is worth the money 
  • This museum brought to life how trolleys were developed in Scranton's glory days, and then defeated by the rise of the automobile. There aren't many actual trolleys in the museum, most of the exhibits...  more »
  • Great history and the exhibits including actual trains and trolleys were terrific. This is a definite if you like trains at all!
