Blending Historic Trolleys with Light Rail Vehicles in San Jose, California

In 1992 Mac Gaddis made a presentation to the American Public Transit Organization on the blending of historic trolleys with light rail vehicles.

At the time, San Jose was an early proponent of historic trolleys running on light rail tracks. Perhaps as a result of Mac's presentation, several other cities now offer similar operations.

It provides interesting background on the early stages of the San Jose Trolley Corporation, a predecessor to our current CTRC.
