Car No 10 is a 1896 electric wooden trolley, saved and restored by the
museum. For thirty years it carried freight and passengers on the
Shelburne Falls and Colrain Street Railway. Then it sat in a farmers yard
for 65 years, waiting to be preserved. It now looks and runs just as it did
100 years ago.

CV Caboose
4015 is a classic wooden railroad caboose, built in 1910, and
undergoing restoration.

Baldwin 0-4-0T No. 10 is one of two self-firing steam locomotives ever
built, and awaits restoration.

Pictures and artifacts in the Visitors Center detail the history of the local trolley and steam railroads.
