Philadelphia Trolley Tracks:

Surviving Trolley track-bed in Plymouth Township

Sandy Hill Rd in Plymouth Twp

Although it hasn't seen trolley service in many years, the trolley track-bed along the north side of Sandy Hill Road in Plymouth Township can still be seen. When the state rebuilt the road with concrete in 1929-30, the design kept the trolley track. This was a common arrangement for local trolley lines, with trolleys travelling both directions on a single track, on the same side of the road. This photo looks west, toward Norristown, at Plymouth Boulevard.
