Movie Production

Attention motion picture producers! Yakima's historic trolley system has remained unchanged over the last 100 years. Vintage trolleys in old-time settings are the perfect backdrop for your period movie. Streetcars are a powerful way to set the historic context of a movie for modern audiences.

Yakima's trolley system runs through residential districts built in the 1920s, equally old commercial districts, and a spectacular river canyon reached via a historic truss bridge. The carbarn maintenance facility and powerhouse both look the same as they did in 1910 including a belt-drive machine shop and power dynamos.

We have four streetcars and two electric freight locomotives, all of which were built between 1909 and 1930. We also have a train of vintage freight cars. Please see our Museum Collection page for photographs and information.

Washington State offers numerous incentives for television, commercial, indie, and feature film productions. Please visit the WashingtonFilmWorks website to learn more.
