The Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum hosted its annual Diesel Day on Sunday.
Visitors were able to ride an authentic trolley car that took them by a number of restored vintage diesels.
The event aims to increase visitors appreciation of the trolleys and how our transportation has changed over the years.
"Well I hope they'll get an appreciation for history," says Jim Dierks, Secretary of the Board of Trustees, New York Museum of Transportation. "We had trolleys operate in Rochester. Some of the went to Buffalo and Syracuse, others were operated in the subway. There are few people who actually remember that. So this brings back history, and gives people a chance to think about where we live and work, and how we get there by car and how we used to do it."
The trolley will be open for rides through November 4.
