North Texas Historic Transportation

North Texas Historic Transportation (NTHT) is an American non-profit volunteer organization focusing on the history of trolleys in the Fort Worth, Texas, area.[1][2][3][4]

The business address of NTHT is Post Office Box 861, Fort Worth, Texas 76101. NTHT does not have a public museum or operation yet, but seeks volunteers to help preserve its collection of authentic Fort Worth trolleys.[1][4]

When the Vought Airtrans automated people mover system that operated at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport between 1974 and 2005 was retired, Cars #30 and #82 were donated to NTHT.[3][5] The group also has cars and other equipment from the Tandy Center Subway which operated in downtown Fort Worth from 1963 to 2002.[6]
