Hop on the trolleys to go to Coney Island, Glen Echo Amusement park, or through Atlantic City.

New York's Last Trolleys: Here are the last four trolley lines to operate in New York City. With exceptional photography and research by Frank Pfuhler.

Intrepid Trolleys of the 1950s: Trolley service in Washington DC ran for 100 years, 1862 to 1962. An electrical conduit buried beneath the streets powered the cars so that overhead wires would not mar historic sights like the Capitol Building and White House.

New York's Last Trolleys: #35 The Church Avenue Line, #68 The Coney Avenue Line, #50 The MacDonald Avenue Line, all in Brooklyn shown operating with the famous PCC (President’s Conference Car). The last line is the Queensborough Bridge Railway, covered in fascinating detail from Queens Plaza on Long Island to the underground terminal in New York City. The film features some of the last trips in 1956 and transportation of car 1001 to the Brantford Museum in Connecticut. 45 minutes

I have just finished watching New York’s Last Trolleys. It is just beautiful – the greatest I have ever seen.

Intrepid Trolleys of the 1950s: Americans in many east coast cities and suburbs once relied on trolley service for transportation. Although “light rail” has become a buzzword today, this film proves its roots are in the intrepid trolley travel of the 1950s! Heading out of town, trolleys stopped at Plow Pits to transfer to overhead power. The 5’ 4-1/2” gauge of the Baltimore trolley system was the widest in America. The brightly painted PCC cars on the high speed Sparrows Point Line cross the picturesque Bear Creek Trestle to the steel mills. In Atlantic City, “The Miss America Fleet” runs down Atlantic Avenue along the boardwalk. Ride inside the cars, dodging people and traffic! In Boston, the orange and cream PCCs of the fabled “MTA” are shown on many of the routes still in service today, starting from Park St. Station, the oldest subway stop in the nation.

Color, 38 minutes. Filmed by Frank Pfuhler, Jr.
