ERRS Trolleys

Edmonton has a wonderful historic park called Fort Edmonton. It re-creates the city of Edmonton from its first settlement up to the 20th Century. Streetcars are included. The streetcars are operated by the Edmonton Radial Railway Society. The ERRS also operates the High Level Bridge Streetcar. This line connects the Capitol mall with Strathcona. It crosses the river on the High Level Bridge just like Streetcars did years ago. They use a car from the Hankai Railway of Japan.
