The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum has kicked off its annual “Trolleyfest” Raffle for 2017.  The museum, which is fully staffed by volunteers is hoping for a large participation in this year’s raffle to provide funds for its continuing operation and growth.  The museum operates Saturdays and Sundays, 11 am until 5 pm from Memorial Day until the end of October, and also on Mondays, 1pm until 5pm during July and August.   Local history comes alive for visitors as they ride the restored 1896 trolley car which once ran across the historic Bridge of Flowers.  The pump car and the caboose are also big attractions at the museum as well as the kid’s corner with its wooden and electric trains.  

This year’s raffle is featuring gift certificates to local businesses such as Green Fields Market/McCuskers Market, and local eateries including the West End Pub in Shelburne Falls and 90 Main Eatery in Charlemont. Copies of Cliff Schexnayder’s book, “Builder’s of the Hoosac Tunnel” are also being awarded.  To help everyone with their summer plans, the museum has also obtained a number of gift certificates to many other trolley and railroad museums in New England such as Hoosac Berkshire Valley Train Rides in North Adams, Shore Line Trolley Museum and Essex Steam Train and Riverboat, both in CT, and Seashore Trolley Boothbay Railway Village, located in Maine.  

Tickets are available at the museum during normal operating hours and priced at only $5 for a single ticket, or 3/$10 or 8/$20.  Anyone wishing to print their own tickets may do so by visiting  You may print your tickets and mail them with your check.  Also, visit the web site to see updates as more prizes become available, and also for details on the prizes being awarded.

Raffle prizes will be drawn at the close of the “Trolleyfest” celebration on July 22.  You need not be present in order to win.  Winners will be called and certificates may be picked up at the museum.

The museum wishes to express its “Thanks” to all the merchants and other museums who have contributed goods and certificates to make this a successful venture.
