The Singing Wire Now at NORM

Back in July 2005 when the Akron Railroad Club held its annual picnic at the Northern Ohio Railway Museum, we were told to come back in a few years and there will be an opportunity ride one of the museum’s cars.

A few years turned into nearly a decade, but this past June NORM finally began selling tickets to ride in former Shaker Heights Rapid Transit Car No. 12 over a demonstration track that that is approximately 1,000 feet in length.

The first public trip ran on June 10. Trips are offered on the second Saturday of each month through October.

These images were made during the second Saturday of operation on July 8.


Car 12 in the background was built in 1914. The car in the foreground was built in 1967.
