One of the most intriguing but uncared for items of American transportation historical past, electrical interurban railroads had been designed to help customers, salesmen, farmers, commuters, and pleasure-seekers alike with brief distance journey. At a time when most roads had been unpaved and horse and buggy journey had been pricey and tough, these streetcar-like electrical automobiles had been important to financial progress. But why did interurban fever strike so all of the sudden and extensively in the Midwest and different areas?

H. Roger Grant explores the rise and fall of this fleeting type of transportation that began in the early 1900s and was defunct simply 30 years later. Perfect for railfans, Electric Interurbans and the American People is a complete contribution for many who love the flanged wheel
