1892 marked the year that trolleys began serving the thriving boroughs, anthracite mines, and patch villages of northern Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania.  Schuylkill Railway’s finest hour came in 1916 when a long-awaited trolley line across Broad Mountain was completed.  As late as the 1920s batches of new steel Brills replaced old trolleys.  When an all-bus system took over, Schuylkill Railway’s fleet of solid Brill cars went west, where they served reliably into the 1950s. Noted transit historian Andrew W. Maginnis and author Mike Szilagyi join forces to present this illustrated history.
