The Waterfront Trolley will re-open on May 15th!
In the summer of 2000, new “ribbons of steel” appeared on the Yukon River bank here in Whitehorse, and the bright yellow Waterfront Trolley made its first public appearance. Miles Canyon Historic Railway Society is proud to have been, and continues to be, an active participant in the ongoing development of this project. Managing the trolley for the Yukon Territorial Government each summer has been a truly rewarding experience.
Visitors to downtown Whitehorse can park and ride the beautifully restored, bright, yellow 1925 Waterfront Trolley. The trolley departs northbound from Rotary Peace Park, across from the S.S. Klondike, and southbound from Spook Creek Station (across from Wal-mart and Canadian Tire). Passengers are welcome to disembark and re-board along the route at the various stations. This interpretive ride describes the Whitehorse waterfront’s fascinating history including the stories about the W.P. & Y.R. line and the mighty stern-wheelers that plied the Yukon River.
