its sad the towns don't wish to redo the past and let the trolly run again just think of the ride through the area cars clogging the roads but the trolley could cut down the bus and cars on the road and see the light of day again

Manyof the tracks are still hiding under the road surface the area where folks now live destroyed the rest, but think of howmany riders they could have between east have to branford old and young alike would ride the rails once a again
