Trolley museum to celebrate 50th anniversary

A trolley goes down a track Tuesday at Pennsylvania Trolley Museum.

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in Arden will host its "Anything on Wheels" event June 22-23, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

Visitors will be able to see dozens of vehicles throughout the weekend. Guests are invited to ride different trolleys throughout the day and tour the museum's trolley display building, which houses nearly three dozen streetcars, along with the museum's restoration shop.

Classic and modern trucks and some construction vehicles will be on display, as will antique and classic motorboats on trailers. A parade of historic trolleys is scheduled for June 22, and presentations on trolleys from Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati and New Orleans are planned that day. 

On June 23, the classic car show is planned. The museum welcomes those who would like to display a vehicle during the show. Pre-registration is not required and there is no fee, though contributions are welcome. Vehicles should arrive before 10 a.m., with the first 50 arrivals receiving a dash plaque. All registrants will receive two complimentary tickets and will also be randomly entered to win museum merchandise.

The museum will also be hosting a World War II re-enactor encampment, and displays from Pittsburgh Garden Railways and Steel City LUG, a Pittsburgh-area group of adults who enjoy using Lego toys.
