Seashore Trolley Museum
Traffic to and from resort towns kept trolleys busy during the summer tourist season.
In an interview with Seashore Trolley Museum, Elcye Parker (b. 1914) said, "I remember the open rides up from Old Orchard Beach – the last trolley at midnight – and oh, the motorman was anxious to get home, so he drove like the devil. We’d go real fast forward, we also swayed out. Sometimes I wondered if the trolley wouldn't go off the tracks."
