Here are some colorful post cards that I enhanced. They are of New York State electric railways. My favorite is the Horse Shoe Curve card on the Southern Tier of New York.

You know, when a tomato grows out of your forehead, it gets you thinking. What do we know about anything? Life is just a big, wild, crazy tossed salad. But you don't eat it; no sir! You live it! Isn't it great? Isn't it great?

duh, what country for westerners.

Heh. What country? Personally, I always thought those New Englanders were from another planet altogether!

Can you say "Photoshopped"?  Lechmere (pronounced "Leech-mere") was one of my favorite MBTA stops when I was a kid.  If I recall correctly there was a huge Sears (?) building at the end of the line, which was something of a famous destination for riders.

I thought this "T" stop was closed years ago, along with the retailer, but it just came up on a (very) quick web search.

BTW, the store at the end of the Lechmere line was not a Sears, it too was called Lechmere.  ANd it WAS a destination, known throughout New England.

Bruce,

Thanks for the correction.  As I recall, the building was so tall and iconic that it could even be seen from the highway heading west out of Boston.

Pictures of the trolley depot in Saratoga Springs, New York are hard to come by. So far, I have found these. Are there any more out there??

The depot still stands as the Visitors Center in Saratoga. Only the tracks are gone.

The cars in the pictures belong to the Schenectady Railway Company and the Hudson Valley Railway Company.

Tomlinson Run Railroad,

My wife & I often stay at the Springs Motel on McDonald Alley & Rt 50 in Saratoga. This is just two blocks away from the Visitor's Center, so this is the reason of my interest. There is lots on Google about the Schenectady Railway, the Hudson Valley Railway and Kadeross Railway which all ran from the depot (Visitor's Center) in Saratoga.

Los Angeles. The color combination on the LA cars is not appealing. The orange is a good choice for visibility of the cars, but the olive green is an ugly choice. I wonder what the designer was thinking?

I am going out on a limb here. It's my opinion that more Connecticut Company trolley cars have been saved and preserved than any other company's trolley cars. Why is this?

Well, ya got two trolley museums (Branford and Warehouse Point) in CT proper; indeed, Branford operates part of the former CT Co. track!
