Good Times on The Dinky Line

On Saturday, April 20th from 12:00 noon – 5:00 pm we invite you to walk the former route of the Dinky Line Trolley for sales, drink specials and to play Detective Dinky. Find hidden toy trolleys along the route to get your ticket stamped and enter to win a Shop Takoma Gift Card!

This is a self-guided walk (not a tour) along the former trolley route which ran through the majority of the Takoma commercial district (see Map tab). We are using this event to encourage you to visit local businesses along the route for shopping (check out the deals!), drinks or a scavenger hunt. You choose!

The Dinky Line was a trolley line that ran in the early 20th century and carried Washingtonians to the country getaway of Takoma Park. The Dinky is a nickname used to describe a short railroad line. The Takoma segment ran south on 4th St NW, left on Aspen St, NW to cross under B&O Railroad, to Laurel St, NW to Laurel Ave to Carroll Ave, and finally a right onto Ethan Allen Avenue, Takoma Park. For more info about The Dinky Line and its colorful history, read this Takoma Voice article from May 2000.
