Our third, and final, photo quiz is this picture of Trolley Stop One.
I wonder how many of our readers remember the Ocracoke Trolley, and know where this structure was located. Also, do you know who operated the Trolley, and when? If you do, please leave a comment. I will post more information tomorrow.

Was the trolley sent off the tracks with the popularity of "Golf Carts" on OI. Have read about "Golf Carts" on OI can only speculate as to how many and who can drive them on which roads? Perhaps the use of "Golf Carts" is cause for concern for OI residents? PS there may not be a golf course on OI but if "Golf Carts" are aplenty it is a Driving Range nonetheless.ReplyDelete
Unlicensed golf carts may be driven on village roads (but not past Howard's Pub). In some ways golf carts have replaced bicycles (though bikes are still a popular way of getting around here), but they have also reduced the number of SUVs and other large vehicles on our village roads.Delete
What about OFF of the Road Pick-up trucks?Delete
Don't remember who ran it but it was located where the Flying Melon used to be. There were two restaurants there prior to the Melon and I remember eating at both of them. One if I remember correctly was called the Trolley Stop restaurant or something like that.ReplyDelete

Am I right that it was located in the square where Farrow's recently built fish house is located? On the right as you head out of the village on rt 12.ReplyDelete
The Trolley Stop Restaurant was located behind where Farris' fish house is today, and where the Flying Melon used to be located. A Ju Jitsu studio is there today. The structure in the photo above was moved there, and incorporated in that building. However, the photo was taken elsewhere. Look for the answer in tomorrow's post.Delete
Capt. Irvin Garrish used to drive the trolley, if I recall.ReplyDelete
Alex Eley had the first trolley, then Irvin Garrish.ReplyDelete
