Transportation History: The Trolley, Tram and Streetcar

https://www.partsgeek.com/mmparts/transportation_history_the_trolley_tram_and_streetcar.html
This article presents a concise guide to the trolley, tram and streetcar, including links to other history and museum sites with brief descriptions of each.

Side note: This page now appears to go through the annoying Cloudflare "Please wait... We are checking your browser..." page. Cloudflare are generally considered legitimate and were winners of the 2022 Microsoft Security Excellence Security Software Innovator award; the check is to protect the web site from malicious attacks; if you fail to get through this I suggest checking the tips offered by TheWindowsClub at https://www.thewindowsclub.com/checking-your-browser-before-accessing [noted July 13, 2022]

All About The Street Car, Trolley and Subways

All About The Street Car, Trolley and Subways
An article written by Carly Hallman covering a variety of topics on Streetcars, Trolleys, Trams, Light Rail and Light Rail Subways including links to other pages on these topics and an extensive list of transportation related museums. Found by Nicole of the Lyndhurst Stem Club for Girls while learning about the history of transportation, as reported to me by Stacey Martin on June 30th 2022.

Side note: I found most of the links in the article to be working, but unfortunately "Historic Streetcar Systems in Georgia" at www.dot.ga.gov and "The Cincinnati Subway" at www.cincinnati-oh.gov did not respond when tested on July 3 and again on July 13, 2022. Both sites were reported as down by downforeveryoneorjustme.com on both occasions.

Thanks to Nicole and Stacey - updated 13th July 2022.
