Here are some pictures from my recent trip to the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, Maine, the first time I’d been there in 35 years. Seashore (originally called the Seashore Electric Railway), founded in 1939, is the first and oldest trolley museum in the United States, and has a vast collection, truly international in scope.
We thought we would make a contest out of identifying the various cars, buses, and artifacts in the photos. First prize will be a copy of our new “Spirit of 76” DVD collection, which includes the first 76 CERA Bulletins, issued between 1938 and 1947, plus bonus features.
To enter the contest, send us a list identifying what you see in these pictures. The best and most complete answer received at firstname.lastname@example.org by midnight Central Time on Thursday, September 4, 2014 will be the winner.
All photos were taken by me on August 16, 2014. There’s a lot to identify here, so I wish you good luck in figuring it all out. When referring to individual photos, please use the image numbers so that individual pictures can be matched to the descriptions. Once the contest ends, we will add captions to each picture.
