Historic Great Falls Trolley Finds A New Home

Posted: Updated:

The Historic Trolley.  It's a Great Falls institution, but for all the ferrying of people that it does around the Electric City, it hasn't had a home…until now.

"My wife works here at the Pre-Release Center and she thought there might be garage space available so I went and asked the powers-that-be here and they generously donated the garage for us.  We just can't thank them enough.  They don't know what it means to us to find a good garage," said Marco Demers, Coordinator and Head Driver.

The Trolley is an Electric City Icon.  Everyone in Great Falls knows the Trolley, so it's important to keep it in good shape.

"She's an old girl and so she deserves the best care we can give her and that includes a heated apartment and all the best care we can give her," said Demers.

"You know, everyone knows the Trolley in Great Falls.  Everybody waives to him when they drive by so it's really great," said Erin Doran, Director of the Downtown Great Falls Association.

It's not just tours you can take on the Trolley.  Businesses can advertise both inside and out while almost any event you can think of can be complimented by this old-school street car.

"All kinds of stuff: birthday parties, wedding, bachelor, bachelorette parties, anything," said Doran.

No matter what event you employ the Trolley for, it's those that ride inside that matter.

"I take great pride in it.  It's a great experience and I meet a lot of people and that's what I like, from all over the world," said Demers.

So while it's great that the Trolley has a place to park overnight, it can't stay in the garage forever.  So for ABC Fox Montana News, I'm Micah Rumsey, it's time to go see the sights.
