The Portland Railroad Company started trolley service through Scarborough in 1902. The business community took advantage of the transportation and the number of people passing through the town. Shore dinner restaurants with a specialty of lobster dinners appeared on Route 1. The open air cars were used during the summer to make it cooler and more appealing to the passengers. This car is pictured near Oak Hill.Show Details
