Fort Edmonton Park provides the perfect stage for the historic ERRS streetcars.

It all started with one single car (Edmonton 1) in 1980 and has since grown into the largest fleet of heritage electric streetcars in Western Canada. Our collection includes nine operational streetcars and seventeen others in our reserve. Two of these are undergoing restoration, two are stored in complete but non-operational condition and thirteen bodies of former streetcars await eventual restoration or rebuilding. Work for ERRS volunteers is guaranteed for decades to come!
Our aim is to eventually restore at least one car of each type that once operated in Edmonton. In addition we hope to restore some significant examples from other Canadian cities as well as countries overseas. The following pages will showcase what has been achieved so far, what is currently being done and what waits for future consideration.
