Trolleys And Toy Trains

Trolleys and Toy Trains

Visitors will be able to ride on our decorated trolleys, enjoy a guided tour, and view our Lionel toy train layout. New this year is a festive I Spy challenge to go along with this year's train display! Cost is general admission which can be purchased in person at the Museum.

Trolleys and Toy Trains takes place on the first three Fridays in December, 2, 9, & 16.


Santa Trolley

The Museum’s stockings are hung by the trolleys with care with the knowledge that Santa Claus will soon be here! While aboard one of our beautifully restored streetcars, visitors will get to meet Santa Claus and take a picture with him. After your ride with Santa, take a ride on the Yuletide Shuttle, visit our decorated Wexford station, see the large Lionel toy train layout, view the wonderful LEGO layout built by Steel City LUG, Pittsburgh Area’s Adult LEGO User Group, make a craft, and enjoy seasonal refreshments. This event is sponsored by KeyBank.
