Come ride with us at the Fox River Trolley Museum, a nostalgic trip back to an era when the electric trolley car was a vital part of American life. Experience education through demonstration the sights and sounds of this unique part of American history aboard a genuine old-time trolley car. FRA has a funny rule about that; if your vehicle is exempt (all Fox River's are) and you put FRA glazing on it anyway, then you are on the hook to maintain FRA glazing forever. And the stuff loves to yellow and fog. Fox Valley Trolley Museum is such a walk back in time. A low key experience. Great for young and old. We brought our grandma who is 100. She's lived in the fox valley her whole life and used to ride the trolley. The conductor's give a little history presentation as you ride the.

Description and History

The Fox River Trolley Museum operates on a remnant of the Aurora, Elgin & Fox River Electric Company's interurban line, which ran north and south along the Fox River, connecting its namesake towns west of Chicago. Passenger service ended in 1935, but freight service continued on a short section to the State Mental Hospital in Elgin (electrically powered until 1946, diesel afterwards). Museum operations began in 1966. Freight service ended in 1971, after which the museum had the line to itself.


The following pictures were taken in July 1991, during the museum's annual summer Trolley Festival.
