With over 400 photographs and 70 maps, Twin Cities by Trolley tells the story of the Twin City Rapid Transit Company system from its earliest days through its heyday in the years before and immediately after World War I to its eventual surrender to the automobile in the 1950s. The book chronicles the history of every line in the system, takes the reader on a grand tour of its shops and carhouses, and explores every detail of its organization and operations. Written by MSM members John W. Diers and Aaron Isaacs, it is being published by The University of Minnesota Press.

By special arrangement with the University of Minnesota Press, we (the Minnesota Streetcar Museum) will be stocking the book.  Twin Cities by Trolley will retail at bookstores for $39.95.  Our price is $40.00 for Item # 1-005
