RE: [FJGRailroad] New Trolley Photos
In that photo you are standing just north of the bridge immediately south of the South Main Street crossing in Gloversville. Northbound cars were directed by timetable special instruction to come to a complete stop at South Main Street. (That is the NB track) The steam trains were within yard limits therefore, since there were no first class trains south of Gloversville, all trains ran prepared to stop unless the track is known to be clear. Speed over all crossings in Gloversville and Johnstown was 8 miles per hour. The car is on the South/East bound main. The area is thoroughly overgrown last time I was there.
