Not a Trolley, but there was a company called the Port Townsend Electric Railway company. "Port Townsend Electric Railway Company's Water, Lawrence and Scott Street line is pictured here. In another 1880s frenzy of speculation, three street car lines were built to serve both existing and anticipated neighborhoods. Speculators finance the lines as a means of making their subdivisions more easily accessible, but the population never grew to support the service." Images of America, Port Townsend, page 36. They didn't last very long, some things never change.
