I have just finished watching New York’s Last Trolleys. It is just beautiful – the greatest I have ever seen.
— Alexander Bockstein, Pres., Urban Transit Club

Intrepid Trolleys of the 1950s: Washington DC, Baltimore, Atlantic City & Boston. In DC, conduit buried beneath the streets powered the cars in lieu of overhead wires that would have marred sights like the Capitol Building and White House. Heading out of town, trolleys stopped at Plow Pits to transfer to overhead power. The 5’ 4-1/2” gauge of the Baltimore trolley system was the widest in America. PCC cars on the high speed Sparrows Point Line cross the picturesque Bear Creek Trestle to the steel mills. “The Miss America Fleet” runs down Atlantic Avenue along the boardwalk. In Boston, the orange and cream PCCs of the fabled “MTA” ran on many of the routes still in service today, starting from Park St. Station, the oldest subway stop in the nation. Filmed by Frank Pfuhler, Jr. 38 minutes
