Rode the Silver line, the idea was started by John D Spreckels in 1892 with the San Diego Electric Railway Company and led to the updated street car #529 manufactured between 1937-1949. I loved the window cranks and the fresh air, the seats are better than the ones on the current trolley. The side-to-side sway is about the same as the present and the bell that rings whwn the door opens is great. and remindes me of the older busses. In some parts of the downtown loop the wheels seem to feel as though they are egg shaped. The new trolley is much better for this It is a historical ride but could never compete in a modern world.
