Wayne P. Groome, dba Trolley Brokers LLC, has been in the business of buying, selling and brokering used rubber-tire trolleys, tram sets and other unique people-transporting equipment since November of 1993. He is one of three people in the United States who is in the business of brokering used trolleys and trams on a daily basis.
