  1. As a member of the Central Electric Railfans' Association, I need to point out the sporadically-discussed streetcar conspiracy also being a plot point in here.
    Whether there was such a conspiracy is still in contention (National City Lines, the corporation which gets most of the blame for 'bustituting' gasoline or diesel motor buses for electric streetcars, did order new postwar P.C.C. streetcars in Los Angeles)(!), and there were people in Minneapolis | St. Paul, MN. who were actually convicted for illegally converting streetcars to buses, I feel the general public bought the line that streetcars were 'old fashioned' and buses were the modern way to go, and so it went.
