We went to the Seashore Trolley Museum last weekend. It was fantastic! The Metrobus was in the parking lot, and because I’ve ridden a couple of these in my youth I had to take a picture. No Metro rail cars.

The building behind the bus is part of the superstructure of the elevated that used to be over Causeway Street in Boston. It was partially dismantled and floated up to Maine on a barge.

I don’t know if the Metrobus was put on a barge, but I’ve got nice mental images of it on a barge in the Atlantic and also driving up I-95.

Here’s a link to the Seashore Trolley Museum’s site:

We visited the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport yesterday. They have in their collection trolleys, subway cars, and buses from as far away as Budapest and Australia, many of them lovingly and beautifully restored by a highly dedicated group of volunteers. In fact, we learned that there are only 5 paid staff there. Everyone else, from the restorers to the railcar operators to the docents, are volunteers.

This interurban station was originally located in Cumberland, I believe.
