This lecture will describe the building of the  Electric Trolley line in town, with the planned routes and extensions.  Larry highlights the “Big Dream” for the extensions into the surrounding communities.  This lecture also includes accidents along the trolley line, including one fatality.  We will also explore the inner workings of the trolley works, pictures of the Huntingdon Trolley and where you can find examples of similar cars today.
