Issaquah, WA — Trolley Update

Rail Transit Online, November 2000

The vintage trolley borrowed from Yakima by the Issaquah Historical Society arrived on Oct. 20, the day after a last ceremonial ride on its home tracks prior to being loaded aboard a truck bound for Issaquah.  The project, a heritage line between the downtown Issaquah Depot and Gilman Village, is somewhat behind schedule.  Start of service, which was scheduled for the holiday season, depends on construction of a carbarn and the issuance of various permits, none of which have yet been approved (see RTOL, Oct. 2000).  The car, No. 1976, a single-truck Brill, was assembled in 1927 for the Oporto, Portugal, tram system.  A trailer-mounted generator will initially provide traction power.  Eventually, the Society hopes to expand the line to Lake Sammamish State Park.
