      The first interurban trolley trip from Amsterdam to Schenectady
      occurred on June 30, 1903. The interurbans started running from
      Amsterdam to Johnstown and Gloversville earlier in 1903, but June
      30th was considered the opening day of the line. One of the former
      Lehigh Valley Traction cars, the so called Yellow Cars, was used to
      make the trip as the heavy interurban cars (100 series cars) ordered
      from St. Louis were not yet completed.
