The walk began at the Little League field across from Quassy and ended at the "parklet" across from the Fire Station.

George Frantzis described the trolley station at Lake Quassapaug.

Bob Desmarais talked about the trolley stop at the former Bissell Store and Blacksmith Shop (now Perrotti's Pizza).

Robin Fenn and Robert Rafford told stories about the trolley line in 1910 as it went along Route 64.

Thomas Proulx gave some history of the trolley and the first fire station.
