Langford trolley items up for grabs

City auctioning off signs and lights

Are feeling nostalgic for the days when Langford had its own trolley?

Well now you can own a little piece of that West Shore history.

The City of Langford has the old trolley signs and light stands up for auction and is inviting residents to bid on several items that were once installed around the city.

There are several items up for grabs and they include a trolley light standard in fair shape with all five globes, a light standard with no globes and some surface discolouration and there are also eight (in single units) signs up for grabs.

These signs are in used condition and will be selected on a first-come first-served basis.

The City noted the concrete bases for the light stands are not included and it takes no responsibility for the wiring or structural integrity of the lights. Delivery is also the responsibility of the purchaser.

This is a silent auction with items awarded to the highest bidder or bidders.

Interested parties can submit their sealed bid at city hall, 877 Goldstream Ave., with the name of the item you are bidding on, your name, and contact information.

Bidding closes at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 18 and the City will contact the winning bidders.
