Town’s trolley system to be remembered
WAYNESBORO, Pa. — In conjunction with their current museum display, “Our Waynesboro Transportation Heritage,” members of the Waynesboro Area Industrial Heritage Trust are preparing to sponsor a presentation about the town’s trolley system, which operated during the first 32 years of the 20th century.
David McCarney, Ed Miller and Gordon Heidelbach will present “Do you Remember Riding the Trolley Through Town?” beginning at 7 p.m. at the Waynesboro Industrial Museum on Tuesday.
The three men have examined engineering maps and researched the route of the Chambersburg, Greencastle and Waynesboro Street Railway System, a popular method of transportation from 1900 to 1932. Now, they’re ready to take a trip back in time to teach others about the role the trolleys played in forming the history of Franklin County.
The Waynesboro Industrial Museum is at 334 Philadelphia Ave.
