The course for becoming qualified as a volunteer trolley operator at the museum will be held on February 29, March 7, March 14, March 21, and March 28, 2020. No previous experience is required. The course will cover the mechanical aspects of trolley car operation, railway rules and safety, history, and visitor interaction. You must be 18 years old by the conclusion of the course and you must hold a valid Motor Vehicle Operator’s License (in any U.S. state).

The fee for the class is $75 ($115 for non-members which includes your first year’s membership) and covers all training materials such as your rule book and instructional handouts. Upon successful completion, you will also receive a hat badge engraved with your membership pass number, two shoulder patches, and a uniform name plate. Following the course, you must undergo an apprenticeship period before you are fully qualified to operate “solo.”

Class size is limited to provide a quality instructional experience. During the past few years, the class has sold out so we encourage you to respond quickly. Contact the museum office or mail your training fee check directly to the museum, marked to the attention of 2020 Operator Training Class.
