Atlantic Electric Trolley Restoration, Wildwood, NJ

 

February 15, 2007


While being snowbound, I started looking at some pictures of Wildwood, NJ from this past summer. Here are some shots of the former Atlantic Electric buldings on the main drag in Wildwood. Supposedly there is a trolley being restored in the bulding, according to the signs. I tried to get more information at the Historical Society a few blocks away, but they were closed. I could find no further information on this project.

You know, I thimk I saw this once before, but it still does not give
much info.
I should ask Ed Miller if he knows anything about this.
