It's ok. But I'm not sure I'd consider this an attraction as such.

Good thing is its free and takes u to west village shopping area. There's also a DART (lightrail) station at the end of this trolley ride.

What a delightful time travel. Windows that operate. Clerestory that opens. Seats that go forward or backward. Quality of construction and appearance. History retold every day. Fabulous!

We walked to the end of the trolley line to pick it up, past lots of great skyscrapers. the line is fun to take and see the NW section of town. Plenty of stops along the way. Kids were really happy to get on the trolley. Saw many restaurants that we wish we had the chance to eat at. the car we rode in was 100 yrs old, and had been someones home for 35 yrs!! . Put back into service 20 yrs ago after being rehabbed. Take a ride in a real piece of history.

Picked up the trolley at St. Paul street and rode to the end and back. Old trolley (Matilda) built in 1926 in Australia and now in service in Dallas. Not much to see or do en route and no one giving any guided tour (not that I expected one). Travel is free, but donations are gladly accepted. Route currently goes from the Arts District on St Paul street and then up McKinney and back. The plan is to expand the route over time.
