Issaquah Valley Trolley’s #519 to Arrive August 23

 The car is on the trailer and ready to leave the Gomaco Trolley Company plant in Ida Grove, Iowa, early Monday morning. It is due to be unloaded on the tracks in Issaquah on Thursday morning, August 23. For most of us, that will be our first opportunity to see the completely refurbished car. Very exciting! The car left Issaquah March 12 for a complete makeover. In addition to installing modern systems and safety features, Gomaco converted the 1925 Lisbon car from narrow gauge to standard gauge.

Track improvements and installation of signals at the Front St. crossing were also part of the trolley project. Everything is set to go; all we need is the trolley car.
