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.

The trolley museum is in the process of “sprucing up” the buildings and displays on the museum grounds.  This includes Fort Smith Light & Traction Streetcar #224 that operates daily from May 1st to November 1st.

It is amazing how ideas are born. The museum wanted to put a new sign close to the street advertising the trolley museum.  It was decided to use a small work crew flat car from the Frisco railroad.  Though this flat car is a museum artifact, it had been sitting unused in waist tall weeds for 20 years..
