Wexford Trolley Station

Wexford Harmony Route Station is restored and open for inspection during all Special Events.

This building started life after construction of the Pittsburgh Harmony Butler & New Castle Railway in 1908.  It is a wooden interurban trolley station that originally served trolley passengers, and later postal and deli customers.  Its interesting history includes the 23 years it was used as a freight/passenger station for the Harmony Route, its relocation to the corner of Wexford-Bayne Road and Old Perry Highway in the village of Wexford in 1931, and its 83 years’ use as a post office, antique store, craft shop and deli.  The exhibit includes the details of the building’s relocation to the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in 2015.
The Wexford station building is remarkably well preserved and really helps to tell the fascinating story of interurban trolley service from Pittsburgh into the North Hills and nearby towns such as Evan City, Butler, Harmony, Zelienople, Ellwood City, Beaver Falls and New Castle where it connected to systems reaching Youngstown, Cleveland and Toledo.  Always on exhibit at its location adjacent to the Trolley Display Building and will be open to visitors during special events.

Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s stockings are hung by the trolleys with care with the knowledge that Santa Claus will soon be there! The merriest man himself will be visiting the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum during the annual Santa Trolley. Join the museum during November 25-27, December 3-4, 10-11 and 17-18 for this spectacular event that runs from 10AM-5PM with the last trolley departing at 4:45PM. Guests will have the opportunity to climb aboard restored streetcars that will transport them on the museum’s 2 mile track.

•  Santa will be happy to have visitors take his picture, so make sure you remember to bring your camera.

•  Stop by the museum’s large Lionel toy train layout. This year’s layout will make you feel like a giant looking down on a beautiful Christmas village.

•  In the museum’s Event Room, you will get to see the wonderful LEGO layout built by Steel City L.U.G., the Pittsburgh Area’s Adult LEGO® User Group.

•  The holiday spirit will be all throughout the air and your bellies will be filled with complimentary hot chocolate and cookies.

•  Children can enjoy making a craft.

•  Admission for the Santa Trolley is $12 for adults, $10 for seniors (62+) and $8 for children ages 1-15; children under 1 are free.

SANTA Trolley admission includes your trip on the Santa Trolley,  a trip on the Yuletide shuttle to visit the South Pole and all open exhibits.

This event is very popular so we do suggest advance ticket purchases be made online due to the limited seating. The tickets can be purchased at ShowClix.com. Tickets are on sale now!

Visitors not having online reservations (walk in customers) may purchase tickets for the Yuletide ride only at the ticket counter.  Unsold Santa Trolley seats may be available to these visitors.  We are sorry, but there is no way to guarantee or determine this before your arrival, so it is first come first served.
