Two trolley poles.

Note the two trolley poles on the trolley. Cincinnati would not allow electric cars to pick up their ground through the rails and mandated an overhead ground wire. This to prevent damage to gas and water pipes due to electrolysis, a serious problem. Outside of the city proper the cars did pick up their ground through the rails and ran with one pole down.

Streetcars Return!

Last weekend streetcars returned to Cincinnati and topped 20,000 riders!
