Please consider a generous donation to our Museum’s 2017-2018 Annual Appeal. The goal in this Annual Appeal is to raise funds to rebuild the trucks under TCRT “gate car” No. 1239 which operates at our Excelsior Streetcar Line. More information can be found here: 2017-2018 Annual Appeal Flyer
In case you missed it you can find an article about the restoration currently underway on the Winona #10 streetcar originally published in the Winona Post January 3, 2017 on their website.
