Loop Trolley 1351 Missouri History Museum Forest Park St. Louis

After attending Gateway Electric Vehicle Club National Drive Electric Week event at Planetarium parking lot in Forest Park – I headed to Missouri History Museum ( also inside Forest Park ) to record this trolley. On several previous trips we hadn’t taken time to do so. There is another Peter Witt streetcar ( Loop Trolley 1352 ) on display across street from Fitz’s Rootbeer and Vintage Vinyl in Delmar Loop.

Later in video you can see current Forest Park Trolley – which is actually a series of buses – route runs seasonally ( April–September ). You can board that trolley at St. Louis MetroLink Forest Park–DeBaliviere station and many other locations.

I personally had a ton of drama catching Forest Park Trolley. As I was trying to get my bearings after de-boarding MetroLink – I saw 2 Forest Park Trolleys – each facing separate directions. By the time I figured out which one I needed – that bus was pulling out – had no chance to cross street to board. I was on a very tight schedule to get to electric car gathering – 15 to 20 minute wait for next bus ( trolley ) – really screwed my day.

Loop Trolley 1351 is long overdue for some love and attention. Video clearly shows some refurbishment – restoration work is needing done.
