Trucks, tractors at Trolley Museum

  • August 23, 2013

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum will hold its annual Trucks, Tractors & Trolleys event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.

There will be dozens of classic tractors, pickup trucks, delivery vehicles and modern construction and commercial vehicles, including a rare 1940 Ford armored car from Northwest Savings Bank and a modern Waste Management truck powered by natural gas.

Visitors also can ride three different trolleys, which will be running every 15 minutes.

This is the third year the museum has teamed with the Washington & Greene County Antique Tractor Association for Trucks, Tractors & Trolleys. The tractors were a popular addition to previous shows.

There also will be a World War II encampment with uniformed interpreters and informational exhibits and numerous artifacts; a food and ice cream vendor; and DJ Fritz, who will play a variety of music.

The children’s play area will feature face-painting, Thomas and Chuggington play tables and play trolley car 225.

The museum welcomes those who would like to display a vehicle during the show. Advance registration is not required, and there is no fee, although contributions are welcome. Vehicles should arrive before 10 a.m., with the first 50 arrivals receiving a dash plaque. Everyone who registers will receive two complementary tickets and will be randomly entered to win cash prizes and museum merchandise.
