Yakima Valley Transportation Co.

Yakima Valley Trolleys, Inc.

This little interurban system in eastern Washington began operating in approximately 1907. It built a line west to Henrybro which was reached in 1910. Another line north to Speyers was completed in 1913. From the earliest years, it was a Union Pacific subsidiary as a means to compete with the Northern Pacific in the area. Local service was operated until 1946. A local group began streetcar service again in 1976 as a heritage tourist line and the property was sold to the City of Yakima. Freight continued to operate with electric power until approximately 1990 when a trackmobile was acquired.
