Reply to "Did "real" Trolleys ever pull flatcars or..?"

There were instances of electrically powered passenger equipment pulling flat cars or even box cars.  This would not be the preferred method of handling freight.  The passenger cars did not have as much pulling power.  Plus they could be more delicate than a freight car so if something went wrong you'd have a busted passenger car.  Still if the line did not have freight motors available then passenger equipment would have to do.
