Review of Atlantic City Trolley Days on DVD by Transit Gloria Mundi

 5 of 5 (1)
For generations of Americans, Atlantic City is more than a place---it is a moment in time. The summers on the beach, the strolls along the Boardwalk and, of course, the trolleys. From Ocean City to the Steel Pier and back again, the trolleys that circled Atlantic City were an exuberant expression of life in this, the queen of all resort towns. Atlantic City Trolley Days is a 40-minute tour that literally covers the waterfront---from the Maine Avenue car barns to the Shore Fast Line. Along the way you'll see plenty of fascinating traction operations, including the car barn, fan trips, and snowy winter work, plus a variety of cars used during the system's last years. Atlantic City's Trolleys is painstakingly researched and brimming with rare archival footage. It's Atlantic City the way you always remembered it.
