Tim Van Schmidt | New SCENE
Take a trip back in time.
Recently I took a ride on the Fort Collins Trolley, boarding in City Park then lurching and bumping down the tracks in the middle of Mountain Avenue — all the way to Howes and back.
You just have to sit back and enjoy because the trolley isn’t fast, but the conductors – dedicated volunteers– make the trip interesting by adding historical facts while the magic of something from another era takes hold.
Everybody seems to like the trolley. As my ride progressed, I noticed that many of the people walking on the sidewalk along Mountain did the same thing – they waved and smiled. People inside the trolley waved back. It was refreshingly and naturally friendly.
