Description
Only true railfans may know of electric interurban railroads, a fascinating fad in the pages of railroading history. Though the use of these electric cars rapidly rose and fell in just 30 years, they played a significant role in Midwest economic growth during the early 1900s. A convenient option during a time in which other short distance travel methods were scarce, the popularity of streetcar-like electric interurban railroads is explored in a rare glimpse into the phenomenon with Electric Interurbans and the American People.
