YAKIMA, Wash. — The Yakima Valley Trolley made its centennial run today from Yakima to Selah.
The freshly painted and polished car carried trolley supporters and local dignitaries. It has been been eight years since they’ve made the trip to Selah, because criminals stripped out several miles of overhead wiring.
The trolley is touted as the nation’s last intact, turn-of-the-20th-century interurban electric railroad.

The general public will be able to ride the trolley today and Sunday. The 90-minute trip will cost $8 for adults and $6 for children and seniors. Trolleys will depart from the Yakima Valley Trolleys’ barn at South Third Avenue and Pine Street at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. both days. Future runs will depend on the availability of a diesel generator on loan to the trolley association.
