FPT cancels Electric City Trolley Museum photo charter

Friends of Philadelphia Trolleys regrets to inform our supporters that the photo charter at the Electric City Trolley Museum, which was scheduled for April 25, 2020, has been cancelled due the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

As of right now our plan is to reschedule the photo charter for 2021.

If you would like a refund please let us know or if you would like for FPT to hold on to your money for the trip in 2021 we will do so.
