I was surfing the web today and found an interesting if not disturbing sight.
There seems to be an inordinate number of sites devoted to tram cars.
The stranges part is the argument that railcars offer a qualitatively better service to riders.
While I ride those damn things as much as anyone else, I never did see the romanticism people generally attach to them. They are old, slow, and make that high pitch squeaking sound every time they turn a corner. I am no fan of buses, but at least they don’t squeak. Subways I do like, even if they do squeak. They’re fast. But I don’t understand these arguments about streetcars being better than buses for the riders.
