We hear a lot about football coaches, but how about Trolley Coaches?
Tomorrow in France I believe a big conference will be held dealing with the environment and climate change. Transportation will be discussed. I hope they consider, what is called the "Transit's Stepchild", namely the "trolley coach" as part of a solution to surface transportation pollution.
This picture was taken from www.nycsubway.org and was taken on 4/18/59 by George Contrad. It shows a BMT work train with AB Standard Cars on the elevated portion that approaches the Williamsburgh Bridge in Brooklyn on the Jamaica Line. Several trolley coaches are shown as as well. If you look closely under the el, you may spot a twin shrunken street lamp as well. What a great picture.
