John

I am familiar with Kato's fantastic tram track and mechanisms. 

I am trying really hard not to get out the credit card,
and spend a small fortune. 

:shocked: 

Regards, Dave L.

In my collection I have included locomotives that run from overhead. 

This locomotive card is special to me,
as I rode from Harrisburg to Philadelphia and back, in the cab of one.

Not this particular engine, but one like it, #934

Regards, Dave L.

I had a chance to ride this car in Lowell, Mass. years ago,
and had to buy this card.

This car is in a trolley museum in Maine,
where I rode it (more than once). 

Their gift shop had a whole wall of trolley postcards for sale. 
I added a lot of cards to the collection that day.

I remember the PCC cars in Philadelphia. 

This card caught these SEPTA cars on a snowy day.

Most cards that I am adding to the collection,
show trolleys in urban settings, such as this card. 

Trolleys downtown seemed to be a favorite subject.

Card producers still find downtown trolleys a good subject.
