|World War I Daily Mail Official War Photograph, Series 21, No. 121, titled "One of our monster guns".|
On the back it said, "Passed by Censor" and "One of our monster guns with which we are hammering our way forward is seen travelling on a railway trolley".
If war is not to your taste then how about Harry Potter?

This lad is no apprentice magician but he is proud of the trolley he rides,

This photo comes from the W E Fretwell Collection -Photographs of William Edward Fretwell (1874-1958). The boy in the photo is H N Fretwell who wrote of this photograph:
"These woodlines used to supply timber to the mines and Kalgoorlie Power House. The lines were moved about to follow the salmon gum forests. The rails were leased from the W.A. Govt. Railways by the Timber Co. and once a year this trolley had to be run all over the line and spurs to measure the distance. H.N. Fretwell on Trolley. Timber cutters were nearly all Yugo-Slavs."
However my trolley search ended much closer to home.

Abalcony car seen near the Tower. By 1959, traditional trams like the Blackpool Standards were considered very old-hat. They had been removed from almost all British cities, and the last few remaining in Blackpool were felt to be an embarrassment - but on very busy days they had to be brought out. Car No 40, still retaining its open ends, was not an object for Blackpool to be proud of. It is seen here reversing at a point which, in those days, was called 'Central Station' (that railway establishment nearby still remained open). Note the conductor with his long bamboo pole for reversing the trolley arm.
You will not need a bamboo pole to get back on track. Just visit Sepia Saturday 92
