A lot of people here are very passionate about the trolleys. I like them, for various reasons, but I don’t talk about them much because I don’t feel competent to win a hardheaded, bean-counting argument about them.* It’s certainly a more marginal case than the slam dunk that high-quality light rail is.
My previous lukewarm support for trolleys is here.
*Alert readers may note that I’ve been similarly silent about the streetcars.
