Streetcars, were good for more than just public transportation... did you know they were used to plow snow along their route?

read about plowing snow with street cars: http://cincystreetcar.wordpress.com/2009/01/

I like that many were made into little diners. See the inside of one at the Henry Ford museum http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_i_AovfzNXgQ/TBBzYprDROI/AAAAAAABNIU/02UfHCQAOiQ/s1600/Henry%2520Ford%2520Diner%5B1%5D.jpg it is the nicest I've seen, most are far more simple and less ornamental
And in San Diego I found one diner street car, and two homes made from street cars http://justacarguy.blogspot.com/2008/06/survivors-of-era-i-doubt-anyone-else.html
