In his presentation, Lerrigo explores the history of two street railroad cards, The Bennington and The Berkshire interconnected to the Oneida Railway. Two thousand miles and over 19 different companies provide this tour and retain the title of the longest trolley ride ending in the Midwest. Both these cars still exist, one restored and one in less than prime condition.
