Shore Line Trolley Museum
Antique Auto Show

Saturday May 18th, 2013

Here is a chance to really experience the way your grandparents traveled around town. The 2013 Antique Auto Show and trolley rides provide an opportunity to see the vehicles your father or grandfather drove, and experience a ride on a trolley car from the same period. On display will be autos that date from the early 1900s through the "Muscle Era," and operating that day will be trolleys from the heyday of the trolley era in the 1920’s.

The antique cars are parked in the parking lot of Sprague Station; there is still plenty of free parking available. As an added feature there will be coffee available in the morning hours and lunch will be available for purchase throughout the day. Listen to music of the period while you tour the antique cars, then take a relaxing ride on one of our historic trolley cars along some of the most beautiful salt marshes in Connecticut.

Antique autos can arrive at the museum earlier in the morning; cost of cars is $10.00 which includes two free passes for the trolleys all day, a $20.00 value. Dash plaques will be awarded to the first 100 cars and the trophies will be awarded around 3PM.

Regular Admission rates for the day apply: Adults $10.00 Seniors (62+) $8.00 Children (2-15) $6.00. Tickets may be purchased at the door on the date of your visit or in advance online for a small surcharge by clicking the button below. Your admission includes unlimited trolley rides and as much time as you like to take in the sights and sounds of the antique autos. Don’t forget to bring your camera - we always encourage our visitors to take as many photos as they like!

The car show is offered by the Shore Line trolley Museum as a fund raiser to support the operations and maintenance of the museum's 95 historic trolley cars. Proceeds help promote the museum's efforts to preserve the story of the trolley for future generations. For additional information call 203-467-6927.
