The Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport  features one of the world's largest collections of electric railway cars. At one time, this method of transportation was key to transporting happy vacationers throughout the Maine beaches region. Places like downtown York and Kennebunk were busy with trolley cars that were powered with overhead electrical wiring. The ready availability and affordability of automobiles following World War II, however, eventually led to the termination of such public transportation.

At the Seashore Trolley Museum, visitors can enjoy up close and personal viewing of these quaint, nostalgic trains. In all, the museum's collection features 250 transit vehicles from throughout the world.  The museum is open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day and weekends throughout October.
