The thought came to mind that many of you may be wondering “What’s a Street Railway?” I’ll give you a very brief history of our company. Plymouth & Brockton has been providing passenger service for over 120 years. Our history is most interesting in that you’ll hear some familiar names. Back on June 3, 1886 a group of approximately 30 men met at the Samoset Hotel in Plymouth and organized that area’s first trolley company, the Plymouth & Kingston Street Railway. The Old Colony Railroad (the first familiar name!) provided heavy rail service to the area but no one provided short runs along the streets, where people lived and worked.
