Hi All !
Anybody know of any trolley/interurban/trackless trolley - museums, events, model shows, displays, etc. in the Indianapolis area coming up this summer ? Plan to be in the area and would like to coincide my trip planning with a trolley event. Thanks !
Paul.

Wow. I searched for railroad museums in Indiana and turned up nothing. Thanks for reminding us about the ITM.

Yeah, I'm surprised also. In the day, it was a hotbed for Interurbans. Thanks !

When I search for "Indiana Trolley Museum" I get the Fox River Museum in Elgin, Illinois as top search. It also lists the Indiana Railway Museum...

Hi Paul,
The Hoosier Trolley meet is usually the weekend after Labor day. i went this year and, can recommend it.
It is a history oriented meet rather than a model meet and is attended by many well known interurban men.

Thanks Leo, I'll look into that. I'm sure that the attendees had nothing on you.
