Diesel trams do.


But do electric trams go vroom?

>diesel tram



Electric trams are more likely to hum their lines, though.

Hennywayz, here are a few old Belgian diesel trams:


Most have been tram-trains that operate on unelectrified railway tracks, so people figure, why make things complicated and electrify with 750 V in the town, let's just go with the diesel all the way.

Mostly trams just go skREEEEEEE…

The Astoria seafront trolley has no OHLE, so runs off a diesel generator in a trailer.

This tram goes clip clop neigh.


99% less iron than a regular iron horse.


Some light Googling helped me find that this trolley was purchased from San Antonio, TX. It was run there on something called the Texas Transportation Company, which was a trolley freight line that operated up until 2001.




I was going to volunteer on this, but I never got round to it.


When did the streetcar stop running? I've never heard much about it. I'm more familiar with the freight operation that ran until '01. Funny enough, my grandfather worked a few summers loading boxcars at the Pearl Brewery in the '50s and at one point have me a bit of insight as to how the operation worked. Mostly he remembered that they drank a LOT of free beer.
