More Trolleys

I do love these things.  I never tire of seeing them.  I can see the romance that is connected with these vehicles. Some interesting lore I found out about these vehicles...

Guess how much they cost after they were decommissioned?   The wood one's were $300, metal was $500!  Can you imagine?  A whole trolley for $300?  It took quite a few years (about 40) to refinish the single truck trolley however I think it was worth it.

Below is the front of a wonderful interurban.  They have a couple.  Wish someone could make these in standard gauge.  Interurbans are unique vehicles, they go up to 70 MPH and can still roam around a city somewhat like a trolley.  Blow up the pic!
