In our last news article, we talked about how our collection at the museum is growing and that we needed a place to store and display the new pieces.  Over the past couple of months, we have been busy getting our property ready for new track.



A good sign that a museum is doing something right is if their collection continues to grow.  Thankfully the Trolley Museum, we are doing just that!  We have been very fortunate over the past 6+ months to be given the opportunity to add two pieces of rolling stock to our growing collection.



For a while now the Trolley Museum has worked on creating a new "sign" for our property that would let people know where the museum is in Fort Smith.  One idea lead to another and eventually the idea to build a sign holder from a novelty miniature streetcar gained traction and took to the rails, thus the Jolley Trolley was created.



A few months ago, a man by the name of Mr. John Holt visited the trolley museum while he and his wife were in Fort Smith he indicated that he had a rail speeder in his possession that he was interested in donating to the museum.



Over the course of restoring Hot Springs Street Railway #50, we have had many milestones throughout the years, such as restoring the wooden body, rebuilding the wheel/truck assembly, getting all the pieces back together so that it can be complete streetcar again.
