This closed car trolley on route 1 is heading north towards Portland. Note the line of trees. The trolleys ran in Scarborough from 1903-1931. Service for Old Orchard Beach started on June 15, 1903. During the busy summer months the Old Orchard Line was the main line of the Saco division. The shuttle car connected at Dunstan Corner for Saco.
This line was a single track system running from South Portland to Saco and Old Orchard Beach. Many turnouts, which had to be maintained, were built to allow for the passing of cars. There were fifteen turnouts on this division alone. The turnouts in Scarborough were called: Sweeters, Oak Hill, Scottows, Southgate, Dunstan, and Bryant.
