Dignitaries on hand at the Seashore Trolley Museum Oct. 12 for groundbreaking of a $330,000 expansion to the Fairview Car Barn included, from left, Laura Dolce, executive director of the Kennebunk-Kennebunkport-Arundel Chamber of Commerce, Arundel Town Manager Keith Trefethen, Seashore trustee Charles Sullivan, David Wade of Biddeford-based general contractor Trades Center Inc., Trustee James Schantz, Seashore vice president Thomas Santarelli de Brasch, Trustee Thomas LaRoche, Steve Huntress of Trades Center Inc., Biddeford Mayor Alan Casavant and Trustee Richard Rubin. Phase 1 of the project — made possible by grants of $25,000 from the Davis Family Foundation and $75,000 from the 20th Century Electric Railway Foundation — should be complete by year’s end and will add 560 linear feet to the barn, providing 14 new storage spaces to the 27 already on hand, while enclosing the open left side of the building from the elements for the first time. Future work will extend the front of the building to add nine more spots, replace the entire roof and add new doors on each access track into the building.
