Another summer weekend in the Susquehanna Valley – so I thought I’d talk about another Museum that you could visit within an easy drive of the Museum of Bus Transportation. It is the Rockhill Trolley Museum located in Huntingdon County – about 1-1/2 hours from the Museum–west on the Turnpike to Fort Littleton exit (new #180) and then north approximately 1/2 hour and you have arrived.

Their collection has nine operational trolleys, including Pennsylvania’s only operating open car, high-speed interurban cars, fascinating maintenance-of-way cars like a huge snowplow and a 106-year-old snow sweeper, and a Philadelphia PCC. Plus you’ll see more cars being restored in their shops by our talented volunteers.

You and your family can learn how about trolleys and how your parents and grandparents got around in America, while enjoying a leisurely ride through the scenic countryside.

I know that several of our members are also members of Rockhill and volunteer there also. They have a “sister” trolley to our Johnstown Bus!
