The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum is a small railroad museum in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, United States.Plan your visit to Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Shelburne Falls trip builder tool.
The museum (SFTM) is dedicated to preserving and operating car number 10 of the former Shelburne Falls and Colrain Street Railway. This is a combination passenger-baggage trolley car built by the Wason Manufacturing Company of Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1896 and is the last known trolley car from the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway.
In 1992, Marshall Johnson donated car number 10 (which his father had bought and saved when the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway shut down, decades earlier) to a small group of people who restored the car back to working order.
The museum also has a small assortment of equipment that is not related to the Shelburne Falls & Colrain Street Railway, including an ex-Central Vermont caboose, a Central Vermont handcar, 2 MBTA PCC cars, and other railroad and trolley equipment.
The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum is located in the old Buckland Freight yard.

Despite being small this museum is quite interesting. A short ride on the restored story gives you a real feel for what it was like. The conductors give an informative presentation with old photos. We enjoyed the visit. The pump car was fun to ride too.
Great, great, great staff. Super knowledgeable of both present and past. Super friendly with us as adults and the children as well. We were able to ride and use 3 of the equipment available. Would do this again. Both kids and adults loved it.
They only have one restored 19th century trolley and a couple of unrestored PCCs. However the staff is great and very informative. You can ride the restored car as well as a hand pumped car.
My husband and I LOVED our visit to the trolley museum. We just happened upon the town and decided to check it out. We got to explore the indoor museum, a caboose car, rode the original Shelburne Falls trolley with a guided tour, and actually got to drive both pump cars as well! It was so much fun and very interesting for only $4 for an adult day pass. The entire museum is run by knowledgable and friendly volunteers. We are looking forward to our next visit when the museum plans to have three more train cars on display as well as an expanded car house.
We had so much fun there today!!! Go here it is fun
