Photographer's Note

The Tramcar is a trackless train service running on the Boardwalk in the New Jersey communities of Wildwood and North Wildwood. The service began on June 11, 1949, five years after the boardwalk was made. The original fare was 10 cents one way. The Tramcar now takes passengers along the two-mile long Wildwood boardwalk for a $ 3.00 fare. A round-trip tram-car ride takes approximately 1 hour. The tram cars carry about half a million people up and down the Boardwalk each year. Service is available at all points along the boardwalk. Operating hours are 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 A.M.

The Tramcar is colored yellow and blue, though sometimes contains other colors due to advertisements. It is well known for the phrase "Watch the tramcar, please," a pre-recorded alert voiced by local Floss Stingel in 1971 to clear the tramcar's path. Each tramcar runs on a 36 DC-volt battery that weighs more than 2,000 pounds. The batteries are charged each night and can run for about seven or eight hours at a time. Several of the tramcars running on the Boardwalk are the same ones that were built for the 1939 World's Fair in New York City.
