The Portland-Lewiston Interurban (PLI) operated in West Falmouth and carried 7.3 million passengers between 1914 and 1933. Learn about the construction (1910-1914) of the line, operations between Portland and Lewiston, and the only surviving high-speed luxury interurban from the line that exists today, PLI’s No. 14, the Narcissus. Currently, under restoration at Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, the Narcissus, has been listed in the National Register of Historic Places since 1980. A number of PLI/Narcissus artifacts will be on display during the event. Narcissus project manager Phil Morse and restoration technician Donald Curry from Seashore Trolley Museum will be the presenters. To learn more about the project, visit www.narcissus1912.blogspot.com
