Branford Electric Railway Association (BERA), better known as the Shoreline Trolley Museum, recently received a state grant to construct two, 11,000 SF metal buildings in a project entitled, “Elevating the Collection.” Two years in a row, hurricanes (Irene and Sandy) flooded the train yard where priceless, vintage trolleys reside, with the salt water damaging and corroding their electronics. The granted funds allowed for construction of two new buildings on a higher elevation than the rest of the yard so museum piece trolley cars and cars being renovated can be stored safely throughout the year.
