- Nov 15, 2006Aaron,A few years ago, Paul Larner and myself were exploring Amsterdam and we noticed a piece oftrack behind a gas-station on Market Street Hill. This track was the lead to the Bunn TrestleTrolley Bridge. The next year when I went back with a camera, it was paved over!Gino

A few years ago they repaved Rte. 30 through Amsterdam (the old part of
Main St. that they didn't tear out during Urban Renewal). The trolley
tracks are all still there. I didn't take any pictures, though... sorry.
I think it may have happened while I was in college.
Construction work on North Main St. in Gloversville also involved the
tearing-up of some of the street between the Cumberland Farms and the post
office. Tracks were revealed there as well.
In both cases, I believe the tracks were laid even with the old paving
stones. It would be a mess to tear all that stuff up.
