One event on October 18, 2017 at 1:30pm

This program covers the short-lived and little known trolley line from Carlisle to Newville, known officially as the Cumberland Railway Company.  The trolley operated along the Newville Road from 1910 to 1920, and even operated a trolley park near Cemetery Hill.  The story of some of the people is as interesting as the trolley itself.  Randy Watts recently published a book on the Newville trolley line, and this program will feature an interesting array of information from the book.
