The Electric City Trolley Museum is once again taking a page out of the area’s rich railroad history by offering excursion runs to PNC Field this spring and summer for Scranton/Wilkes Barre RailRiders ballgames.  Select games through August,will offer fans an opportunity to “take the trolley” to the park at a very reasonable rate. This hassle-free service will also provide the riders with a picturesque snapshot of our community’s natural beauty.

The price of the excursion is $20 per person and includes the trolley fare, game ticket and a $2 voucher for either the concession stand or team store.  If you have game tickets and just want to ride the trolley, the cost is $11. Reservations for both packages are required.
