Part of Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum's mission is to preserve and interpret the historic buildings and other physical aspects of the Buckland Freight Yard.
Here is a ca 2004 view of our yard, showing also a little of the village of Shelburne Falls.
The Visitors Center and Freight House are labeled. Red outlines show things that have been removed, green shapes are additions since the picture.
1. The 1996 wooden Carbarn
2. Old Grain Shed, removed 2013 3. The new 2015 metal Carbarn
4. The Creamery foundation and freight dock were removed in 2014
5. A ramp for wheelchair access was added in 2006.
6. A new front porch with wheel chair access to the trolley was added in 2012
7. Trolley No. 10 waits for its next load of passengers
8. Our Main Line with overhead wire for trolley rides run along the edge of the parking lot here, parallel to the Main Railroad Line, Pam Am southern, ex Guilford Railway Systems, ex-Boston and Maine Railroad, ex-Fitchburg Railroad, ex-Troy and Greenfield Railroad
The passenger car and caboose and box car are beside No. 10. Also evident is the 0-4-0 Baldwin steam engine that was moved to Connecticut Eastern Railway Museum.
You may board at either end of the line. The Bridge
of Flowers, McCuskers Market and other Buckland shops are just beyond
the lower left corner of this picture.
