Sunday Video: Friends of the Benson Trolleys


Take a step back in time to the golden age of streetcars in this video. Campaigners to restore the historic Benson waterfront trolleys share the story of how these streetcars came to serve Seattle and inspire. Friends of the Benson Trolleys hope to bring them back to city streets once again after the Center City Connector is completed. You can help in this effort.
