Go to Events to see what's happening this Halloween at the Excelsior and Como-Harriet Streetcar Lines.

Como-Harriet Streetcar Line

Step back to the days when the streetcar was king — when Twin Citians went to work, to school, and to play by trolley! Visit the historic displays in our station, shop our unique gifts and souvenirs, then take a nostalgic ride on one of our historic streetcars along a scenic route between the lakes. Your Motorman will provide interesting information about the car and Minnesota streetcar history.

Excelsior Streetcar Line

Enjoy a trip through historic Excelsior along a half-mile of track built on the former right-of-way of the Minneapolis and St. Louis Railway. The car stops at our car barn so passengers can view a photo gallery of hotels, trains, paddlewheel boats and landmarks from the 1800s; history, in pictures, of the Twin Cities Rapid Transit as it ran in Minneapolis and St. Paul; other streetcars in our collection; work in progress of restoring a vintage streetcar.
