Came across this today....
Interested in Trolley's and Trolley Restoration?

Hoosier Heartland Trolley Co. is developing a world-class organization to preserve the legacy of Indiana’s electric railways and the people who made it possible. This will be an immersive experience that is educational, entertaining and authentic as a true mode of transportation.

That's cool.

Up here in New England, we have the famous Seashore Trolley Museum. I wonder if they are assisting this organization since they have been at it for quite sometime (I think 1931 or so).

From the pics it looks just the group is just a few people... I hope they get and keep the funding they need...

I saw that too after I posted. I hope they get the funding as well.

Indianna lost some great lines like the rest of the country during that period.
