I managed to add another card to my collection. 

Still looking to find another collector of post cards,
to do some trading.
 
I have fond memories of riding the trams at Blackpool,
and the Seaton line trams.

(I do have postcards of both!) 

Regards, Dave

The big bi-annual trolley meet,
has been announced for this year.
 
I can't make it.

But they are always great fun if you are into trolleys (trams)
and live close enough to attend.

Today I was able to spend some time looking through my trolley postcards. 

I am trying to figure a way to organize them,
to make it easier to determine if a card is already in my collection.

Presently they are organized into categories of open cars, four wheel cars,
PCCs, present LRVs, work and freight motors, and general two truck cars.

Lately, I've started to incorporate cards showing trolleys in scenes (cities and rural settings).

The category that is most challenging is the general, two truck trolleys section,
how to organize it to quickly see if I have a specific card. 

I've thought of doing it by traction company, car color,
and general locale or area of the country. 

I welcome suggestions.

Thanks, and Regards, Dave L.

My postcard collection is on the small side,
but I'm already seeing the problem in keeping things organized.

Not just with trolley postcards, as I have picked up postcards on Death Valley,
and even a few of Baker (on the I15 between Las Vegas and Los Angeles).

Keeping the trolley postcards grouped by traction company,
or by area or subject with the others, seems to work best for me.

If the trolley postcard is from a museum,
do you group it with other museum cards or by company name?

What about something like the Central California Traction? 
It started as an electric line and was eventually dieselized. 
Is it a trolley line or a short line?

I'm not sure there is a perfect system. 
But, if someone comes up with one I want to hear about it.
