I believe the trolley program that began in 1931 involved trolley buses, which did not run on rails. The tram-line system (which I believe were also called "trolleys") was much older, but was gradually phased out by the new trolley buses. I believe the tramlines were phased out by 1952. Although "The Children of the Pool" was published in 1936, it seems, to the extent it was based on Machen's experience, to reflect a time he lived in London. Machen moved away from London in 1929, according to Wikipedia. Hence, it may refer to the tramlines that were in place before 1929.
