It looks like a quiet, residential road in Rockport until one gets to Jim Gamage Jr.’s house.

Parked outside is a fleet of trolleys, super stretch limousines and other vehicles.

Gamage started the All Aboard Trolley Co. about seven years ago. His goal was to bring some of the old-fashioned charm and nostalgia of trolleys back and fit them into the sightseeing business in Midcoast Maine.

He had been running the company with two 23-passenger trolleys.

In January Gamage purchased seven vehicles as part of a package deal from a man in Massachusetts who was going out of business due to a divorce.

The company now has two new 43-passenger trolleys, four 24-passenger limousines and other vehicles. The company has about 20 employees including some who work part time and others who work full time.

“We’ll be hiring three additional trolley guides, seven additional drivers and one to two employees for ticket sales,” Gamage said in a press release.

Gamage said he was originally interested in adding the two trolleys and planned to sell off the limousines, but he changed his mind when he learned how much interest there was in limousine services. He has expanded his business to incorporate the limousine service and even changed the name of the company to All Aboard Trolley & Limousine Co.

The stretch cars offer a number of luxuries including XM radio, karaoke machines, laser light shows, fog machines, video games, flat-screen televisions and even fireplaces. The super stretch limousines include three Cadillac Escalades and one Hummer.

The trolleys also have flat-screen televisions, fireplaces, karaoke machines and light shows.

The company has offered private rentals, sightseeing tours, cruise ship tours, and shuttle service for the North Atlantic Blues Festival and the Maine Lobster Festival.

It also provides for weddings, anniversaries, proms and other events.

Gamage said he has packages for trips to Hollywood Slots in Bangor and he expects to take people to Fenway Park, Portland, Foxwoods and other locations. His company operates anywhere in the state that there is a need, he said.

Gamage also owns All-4-U Inc., a staffing agency that provides temporary employees in areas including clerical, landscaping, light industrial, sales and janitorial.

Gamage is from Rockland originally. He worked at Nautica in Rockland for some time and then later moved to New Jersey and worked in warehousing. When he returned to the Midcoast, he went into business for himself.
