NYLON – The New York Museum of Transportation in Rush is offering a unique chance to ride on the only remaining fully functional trolley car in New York State later this month.
According to the Museum, this one and only trolley ride in New York State is reminiscent of the interurban trolley era of 100 years ago that saw high-speed trolleys connecting Rochester with Buffalo, Syracuse, Geneva and Sodus.
The ride is included with admission to the museum featuring restored trolleys, a real steam locomotive, and two large model railroads. Assorted transportation artifacts and gallery show add to the visit, bringing area history to life in a hands-on experience unmatched in the region.
The New York Museum of Transportation is open Sundays only, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $8 adults, $7 seniors age 65 and over, $6 youths age 3 – 12.
The museum is located at 6393 East River Road in Rush, one mile north of Rt. 251 (exit 11 off I-390).
