Step Inside This Eerie Graveyard In Pennsylvania Where Trolleys Go To Die

Pennsylvania’s transportation history is rich in memories. From the introduction of the railway to the launch of the trolley systems throughout the state, Pennsylvania’s past is alive with transportation. In fact, it was way back in the late 1800s that the state legislature passed a bill allowing motor power companies to transport people using railways, cables or other means. Thus the “birth” of the trolley system.

That was more than 125 years ago. Today, trolleys in Pennsylvania are more nostalgic than anything else. The lucky cars used in days gone by get selected for restoration (like the one below). But what about the other trolleys? What happens to them?
