Enjoy a three mile leisurely round trip onboard a restored historic trolley car through the scenic Branford salt marshes near Long Island Sound. Learn about the history of trolley development and trolleys in Connecticut and beyond from our expert trolley operators/tour guides. Tour our trolley storage buildings and our indoor exhibit room to understand how trolleys played a role in the development of America as we know it today.
It’s a journey back in time you will not soon forget! Hear the sounds of steel on steel as you smell the sweet aroma of the shoreline salt marsh and view wildlife such as the majestic osprey.
Children can help the Motorman prepare the trolley for the trip. During the trip, your trolley operator will show you restored trolleys in our collection and explain how they shaped America as we know it today.
This leisurely adventure takes you away from the hustle and bustle of modern day life. Bring a picnic lunch to our picnic grove. This wonderful nearby attraction is fun for Motormen and women of all ages. Your ticket is good on all trolley cars for the entire day, so ride as much as you like!
Trolley cars depart the station building regularly throughout the day, beginning at 10:30AM. Last car departs at 4:30PM.
