September 7 and 8 will be a special Cracker Jack weekend! Thanks to the generosity of Frito-Lay all kids riding the trolleys those days will get free Cracker Jacks. Thanks also to the Yakima Herald for help in publicizing the event.

Roofing of both buildings was completed in June. Trolley service began July 6 after a delay caused by insurance problems. TV and newspaper coverage of the season startup was fantastic! Our ridership has been high ever since.

Jerry Henderson, Joe Rief, and Eric Brandhagen have been busy working on the overhead wire system. Problems with the cable TV wire crossing the Y.V.T. wires in Selah Gap were corrected by the trio in July using line car A. This month they strung new wire over the yard lead track that formerly had none. Next they plan to raise wire to its correct levels wherever it had been incorrectly installed.

Gregory Johnsen is spearheading the restoration of the old Y.V.T. bathroom in the substation building. He is refurbishing the original sink and acquiring authentic electrical fixtures which match others used by Y.V.T. elsewhere.

Because the trolley operating season was late getting started, the Y.V.T. Board may decide to extend the operating season into September. Watch the website for details.
