So I was just looking at the Trains Mega Thread, and started wondering... have we been putting TROLLEYS there?

There have been many stamps with trolleys on them, and while they do ride on rails, these days they are usually not classified as "trains".

I did a search, and didn't see a thread here JUST for trolleys, so how about we start a new one!??



I am going to include SUBWAYS as well, THOUGH subway cars are closer to "trains" than not. We can get into "interurban", "surface lines", etc... In Boston, "trolleys" also go underground, and "subway cars" also go ABOVE ground, so I think we can get away with putting subway stamps here as well.
