Once in a while, the San Francisco Cable Cars lose the cable on an incline and need a push up the hill. I've heard that sometimes the cable is greased up too much causing the clamp to slip. I wonder if that is why the cable car didn't re-attach to the cable on the flat section, and instead had to be pushed up the second hill.

Trolley and Motorman on C&E Line in Erie Pa - looks like it's actually the negative, too.


There are many mysteries in this universe, big and small. Like, why do clowns make us laugh? Why do we love puppy dogs? And why, why do little blue midgets hit me with fish?

 

 

 

 

Here are a bunch of toy trolley cars I wish were mine. I do not know which companies made most of these trolley cars, but there are some by Lionel, Voltamp, Kingsbury Pressed Steel, Marklin, Ives, Chein, Howard, Knapp and Hubley.

That fellow in the front looks like he's about to get his hands dirty.  Or, maybe he already has and he is hiding them after getting things in tip top running shape again.

This is not a negative print.  However, this print was done backwards which means that the negative was inserted in the enlarger incorrectly.  The car number should read 2018.  I wonder if this was a local street car or one that went west towards Girard, PA and Conneaut, OH.

How coincidental that this photo should reappear in 2018!

Here is a photo of a traction cart on college hill in Easton. The tram served Easton Pennsylvania and Phillipsburg NJ before the depression when it closed. Apartently one of the original tram karts was found and is now being restored in Phillipsburg by the Railroads historians (mind you NOT the NYS&W T&HS) and are getting underway with it.

Kawasakis and Suzukis.  My 1985 GS550E with a Ca. 1980-81 K-whacker LRV on Island Avenue just up from the loop.   Taken around 1987.  Good times.    (Yep, I posted the same picture on ADVRIDER if anyone just happens to be on this forum and on there also).

Got a few more from that day but all of the slides and prints are all buried.  Sorry for the crappy quality, it's a cell phone picture of one of the prints
