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.
