Any comments? Let me know at:
New Stuff (May 15)
First Run: November 13, 1931
Last Run: October 2, 1946*
* There is a disconnect regarding the last run date. "The Trolley Coach in North America" indicates it as September 15, 1946.
However, Paul Stringham's "76 Years of Peoria Street Cars" provides additional details regarding the operations of the streetcars and trolleybuses
in Peoria, and would seem to indicate that the last trolleybus run was on the evening of October 2, 1946, with diesels replacing the streetcars
and trolleybuses on October 3, 1946.
