      Hi John,
      Thanks for posting this excellent Los Angeles news feature that
      has so many old photographs of the the LA horse-drawn
      street cars! Think of these as oatmeal fueled railways.

      It appears that in almost exactly the same year, 1873,
      San Francisco's cable cars were put into service. Hey,
      I can still board one of these!

      It's fun to ride around on "unbelievable trains", besides
      I still haven't seen many places where you can jump on
      a flying streetcar or skateboard...

      Reynard
