PHASE 1 & 2: During the Summer of 2019 nearly 5,000 people rode happily on Pennsylvania Trolley Museum’s (PTM) historic trolleys during the Park’N’Ride service to the Washington County Agricultural Fair.
Visitors during the fair were some of the first to see a project that included new warning signals at the crossings, 1,300 square feet of newly constructed track, overhead wire, an elongated platform, and a new bridge. This portion (Phase 1) of a multiple phase project was paid for by the county and Pennsylvania Department of Transportation.
The work to date has been made possible by funding from the Washington County Tourism Promotion Agency, Emory Rail Heritage Trust, the Fairbanks-Horix Foundation, Epic Metals Charitable Trust, and individual donations. PTM Volunteers have been deeply involved in the design, engineering oversight, and physical support of the project.
The remaining six canopy supports will be used for the museum’s Trolley Street Project at the site of the new Welcome & Education Center. To learn more about this expansion project and the Capital Campaign to make it happen, please visit our Capital Campaign page.
