Nuts and Bolts- The Mechanics of Tram Car 1220
Saturday September 29 & Sunday September 30
Do you know what a contactor box is or what it does? What about a coupler? Visit the Steveston Tram to learn about the mechanical parts that made the tram cars run. Watch the trams ride the rails in Steveston, Vancouver and New Westminster in a video filmed in 1958. Discover how Tram Car 1220 helped to build the City of Richmond as we know it today. Children can create a self-portrait of themselves as a tram passenger.

Due to restoration, school programs are on hold until January 2018. To book, please contact the Coordinator on 604-718-8439, email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out our online booking form.
