Too bad trol­leys are gone

RE: HSR TEST­ING BAT­TERY-POW­ERED BUS (NOV. 28)

As vi­sions of the LRTS dance in his head, Mayor Fred seems to for­get the glory days when much of down­town Hamilton was con­nected by clean en­ergy trol­ley buses and miles of over­head power grid.

Look­ing back, if the city coun­cil of the day had fu­ture vi­sion the trol­leys would still be here, also if they had sur­vived, which they did not, the on­slaught of diesel buses would not be here.

The trol­leys to­day would be deemed unique and an at­tempt to hold on to our fast dis­ap­pear­ing past. Too bad they are gone.
