New Orlenes and san francisco is the only places that managed to keep electric trollies that i know of.
I found this interesting. Iím originally from N.E. Oklahoma and after college I moved to Sherman Texas for employment and have lived in the area for the last 31 years. What rural area was you mother from? I ask because the beginning of the interurban electric (DC) trolley system in Texas actually started in the Denison/Sherman area. Here is a link to a brief history lesson of the Texas interurban railway system. I also found it interesting the automobile being blamed for the systems ultimate demise in the text as it supports your motherís attitude of GM.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
