We are planning to reopen for streetcar rides on the July Fourth weekend. We may be able to schedule charter rides earlier. Please call 952-922-1096 for information.
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!

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.
