The McPherson Trolley will soon have a permanent home with the Park Department.

City Public Lands and Facilities Director Wayne Burns informed city commissioners during a study session Monday that the 40-by-40 foot steel building will have two doors, which will allow the trolley to pull in and out without the need to back up.

City Administrator Nick Gregory said the Convention and Visitors Bureau has had trouble finding a permanent home for the trolley.

“The places we've had it have had very tight doors and getting it in and out has been a problem,” Gregory said. “Having it at a permanent location...we've had it at a number of different locations and they've said, 'Well, we don't really want to house it anymore.'”

The building, which will be constructed by Yoder Engineered Services out of Yoder, is projected to cost $42,000.
