Tramways of South America
4 of 5 (1)
Tramways of South America is a comprehensive look at the continent's highly varied tramways, showing big-city systems and rambling country trolleys, suburban commuting and interurbans. Car types range from tiny single-truckers (closed and open, even horsecars) through trains of double-truck ex-Pacific Electric interurbans (as well as many other secondhand cars from the US and Europe). The backdrops include crowded city streets (filled with vintage US-built autos), sleepy small towns, mountains, and jungle.
