Have you ever wanted to work on an old trolley car? Here is your chance. Lowell National Historical Park is looking for people who are willing work at least one shift per week on the trolley car on a regular basis. Duties include assisting the motorman in the operation of the park trolley in a safe manner, stopping traffic to allow the safe crossing of the trolley at various intersections, and answering general questions from visitors about Lowell, the park, and history of trolleys. Many find the job to be quite enjoyable. Safety and operational training will be provided.
The trolley operation runs March through November. You must be able to work in all types of inclement weather during rainy, hot, or cold periods. You also must be fit enough to go up and down the trolley steps. Work shifts can last 4 hours or longer and include breaks.
