Thank you for posting photos of Philadelphia and environs.  I have three books on trolleys and streetcars, by Arcadia press and most of the pictures you have are not in those books.

Thanks for the Oregon photos. I found them very interesting.  I was particularly interested in the photo of Portland Traction 4004.  PT 4001 is at the Western Railway Museum.  See photo below.  It was formerly Indiana Railroad 202. Another of these cars, 4003 I think, is at IRM.  Indiana Railroad bought 6 of these cars and two still exist.

Oregon City is in Oregon, so I went by the destination sign on the car, not its heritage. Many many trolley and interurban cars started life on one railway and wound up on another as lines went out of business.

I have no more trolley / interurban photos to post. It is my hope that others will post some of their trolley & interurban photos so we can keep this post going.

Being a Long Islander, trolley lines that operated on Long Island are my favorites, especially these:

New York & North Shore Railway;

NY&NST 10 Stephenson

New York & Long Island Traction Company;NY&LIT Car 9 194kb

Huntington Railroad;

Huntington RR No 28

Manhattan & Queens Traction Company;

July 20th, 1937 image was taken on Queens Boulevard between Union Turnpike and Van Wyck Boulevard in Kew Gardens while passing Maple Grove Cemetery - Copy

New York & Queens County;

College Point Ferry Terminal at the end of 14th Avenue 3

Brooklyn & Queens Transit;

B&QT Peter Witt 8361 in St. George 334KB

Northport Traction Company

0243

My favorite street car / trolley car historian is Vincent Seyfried who was my high school English teacher.

Lets see your favorite traction lines.

San Diego LRV 1017, now at the Western Railway Museum, in the yard in front of Carhouse Three.  What caught my interest was the new LED lighting in traditional fixtures.  But after looking at the picture I thought it was just kind of interesting on its own.

Post cards of trolley and interurban cars are great sources of traction history. This post card is fascinating. Look at the 3 interurban cars. There must have been a wye track arrangement at Evans City Junction.

Evans City Jct, Harmony Line, Pa

Evans City Junction was likely an important place circa 1910 judging by the photographic attention given to it by the media.
