To Preserve and operate the streetcars of the Arizona Street Railway Museum (dbaÂ Phoenix Trolley Museum) as a living example of a traditional trolley service.
The Phoenix Trolley project was started in 1975 by a group of individuals who purchased one of the last remaining bodies of an original Phoenix Streetcar. The project became a Museum and was established as a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Corporation in 1978. Since that time, a Car Barn has been constructed, and Streetcar #116 has been partially restored toward eventual operation. One additional car has been obtained by the Museum and we now have two Streetcars in various stages of restoration: our Flagship #116 and its sister car #504 (#108).
