This map shows the trolley network that linked most of Montgomery County, in the first half of the twentieth century. The legend in the lower left hand corner (of the full-size map) lists the dates the trolley lines were completed, and when they were abandoned.
For example, the brown line on this
map, known in later years the Skippack and Perkiomen Transit Company,
stopped running in 1925.
The blue lines, known as the Reading Transit Company, converted to all buses in 1933.
The red line, the Liberty Bell high speed line, quit in 1951.
Articles about three of these trolley systems can be accessed at the Norristown Trolley page.
