Founded in 1939, the Seashore Trolley Museum maintains the world's largest collection of electric railway and other transit vehicles. Its dedicated cadre of volunteers presents a living history of public transportation through its operating, preservation, and educational programs. The APTA Streetcar Subcommittee has organized a one-day technical tour of the museum's facilities. You're invited to visit displays on the history of mass transportation, explore three exhibition carbarns, and witness the craft of streetcar preservation firsthand in the restoration shop.

On Saturday, June 11, the technical tour departs Boston's North Station at 8:50 a.m. aboard Amtrak Downeaster Train #691 to Saco, Maine and returns to Boston by 5:25 p.m. via Train #696.
