trolley graveyard is no more

Some time during the summer most of the trolleys, cars and buses were hauled off by persons unknown. A local neighbor says about 2-3 days were spent with cranes, flatbeds and dumpsters, cutting up the pieces of the old hulks and disposing of them. He’s not sure who it was, why it was done or even who owns the property. These are probably the last pics anyone will see of the Trolley Graveyard… they were taken a few months before the wrecks were hauled away on a return trip I had made to the trolley graveyard.

    I stopped by this former trolley graveyard yesterday, and can confirm that all the trolleys have been removed. There is little left in the area besides some old RR ties, metal debris, tires, etc. I’ve been meaning to visit here for years, and simply waited too long. A little more “history in the woods” vanished.
