Wouldn't city transportation be more appealing with the original streetcars?

but the shortsighted greedy bastards sold out to gross polluting diesel bussses, and trashed all the cool looking and electric streetcars. Morons. I was reading recently about all the cities that went to electric streetcars as a pollution reducing measure, and to increase the effective public transit systems. Here in San Diego when huge events like major league ballgames, national football league games, or an event like Comic-Con happen, the go to device for getting there and back is usually the trolley system. Nothing as aesthetic as the old street cars, but serviceable

  1. ...d'you know that 30% of what we call TRAM (street car) come from Italy...we are not less "stupid"..we're trashing all the 900 line, the ones you got in the pic, 'cause they are a little too noisy. And what about the retrĂ² fashion design?
    ..I just don't get it sometimes...
