The Sunday WinterFun series at the New York Museum of Transportation, 6392 E. River Road, West Henrietta, will continue April 7 with “The Glen Haven Line” by author Charles Lowe.
The illustrated talk will run from 1 to 2 p.m. and is included with museum admission — $4 for adults and $3 for ages 3-12.
The Glen Haven line formed a high-speed entry into Rochester for interurban cars and a route to Glen Haven Park on Irondequoit Bay. Lowe will explain the creation of this route, its years of operation and remaining relics.
The interurban era of electric trolley travel was a unique period in U.S. transportation history. Lines were built throughout the country, providing a high-speed alternative to steam trains and the horse and buggy.
The steam locomotive, trolley cars and fire truck at the museum will help illustrate transportation history in hands-on fashion, along with exhibits of photos, models and artwork. The new display covers the Midtown Plaza Monorail.
The museum is open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays. Call (585) 533-1113 or visit nymtmuseum.org for information.
