The Yakima Valley Trolley Association is making moves to develop and restore the trolley line.

Volunteers hosted their first fundraiser Saturday. Their goal? to raise as much money as they can.

they are opening the line to Selah within the next month and all proceeds from Saturday's event go towards the project.

Volunteers said they want the trolley to operate downtown, too.

"I think we are beginning to see now that tourism is very very important to us, and this trolley operating like I described around the core of the city would really go a long way to becoming a tourist draw," says spokesman Karl Pasten.
