I will be honest with you, one of the things that likely made me a railfan as a kid was having this book read to me...

I love interurbans. Tried to find one for my HO set, but nobody makes them.

Rattling through the cornfields at 60MPH. That would have been cool.

Default Interurban

Yes, I am a bog fan of interurban rail, before I rode a train, I rode street cars and L-Trains in Chicago. I guess you'll just have to make your own HO trolley.
