Home for Aged Trolley Cars

THE Seashore Electric Railway of Kennebunkport, Me., is a short stretch of track going nowhere. It’s run by and for people who miss the rattle-clang of the streetcars that have been discarded by Progress in favor of malodorous diesel buses. Fifteen years ago three sentimental Bostonians acquired a 12-bench open trolley; now the New England Electric Railway Historical Society has 300 members and owns rolling stock from points as far away as Denver and Minneapolis.

    Reminds me of the Halton County Radial Railway museum, and if your in the Toronto area you should check it out.
