Another section of the Huckleberry Trolley Line from the old Otis Substation to Algerie Four Corners in Otis. Perfect conditions for some cross country skiing! This 2.1 mile section took us through Watson and White Lilly Pond. Near Algerie the trolley was entirely under water due to keeping the grade at a reasonable incline for the cars but makes me wonder how they kept it from flooding during operation? Watson Pond didnt exist until a dam was built on Chandler Road and Lee Westfield Road for the mills there and to make water power.
