Steveston Tram: A Love Story, a video about the historic Interurban tram system, is the second release from the collection of the new Richmond Stories video series.

Viewers will get a glimpse into the lives of the many diverse people who rode Tram Car 1220 for work and pleasure, including the charming, real-life love story between a tram worker and a regular Steveston rider. The video is available for viewing online on the City of Richmond’s YouTube channel or can be enjoyed in person, inside the Steveston Tram museum, beginning Family Day weekend on February 17, 2023.

After watching the video, climb aboard Tram Car 1220 as featured in the film, and learn about the restoration process that brought it back to its original state, in the museum’s permanent exhibit.
