OcTrolleyFest 2005
A Celebration of Transportation Heritage and
Community
For nearly 150 years, or since 24 December, 1858,
when horse car service to Darby began, streetcars
and trolleys have connected us with the wider

world and with each other.
On Saturday, October 15, 2005, from 10:00
am to 4:00 pm we celebrated this heritage. A
restored, streamlined
PCC made the loop between
