Who said European Americans don't use public transit? This is Barry and Bruce Gorsuch riding a streetcar at 14th Street & Columbia Road on the last day of DC streetcar service, Jan 27, 1962. Their great-grandfather was one of DC's first trolley operators in the 19th century.

Wouldn't it be nice if the new DC Streetcar line purchased some surpus PCCs and added air conditioning with an attractive rooftop housing like the Silver Sightseer had. They could run along with the new cars as San Francisco is doing.
