ways were rendered obsolete not by a transportation
development of superior technology but by one that
provided only a greater mobility. As a mass trans-
portation vehicle the electric railway possessed many
of the same virtues in 1965 that it had in 1900. For
it could still transport large numbers of people far
more economically, and quite often more rapidly,
than its petroleum-fueled successors.

As America's metropolitan planners, and not a
few of the commuting public as well, were becoming
increasingly aware, the private automobile, with its
insatiable demand for highway and parking space.
was a costly and far from satisfactory way of getting
the suburban dweller between home and work. It is
not unreasonable to suppose, for example, that the
Waukesha commuter who once was whisked to

Iowa's Charles City Western Railway, which

couldn't bear to part with its inter urban after

passenger service ended in 1952, refurbished car

downtown Milwaukee in as little as 35 minutes by
interurban, and who must now spend considerably
more time making the same trip by bus or ma-
neuvering his automobile through congested streets,
regards the disappearance of his electric railway
with some regret.

Indeed, throughout the 50s there was a grow-
ing interest again being shown in the electric rail-
way. Toronto completed its handsome new Yonge
Street subway, Cleveland inaugurated a brand-new
rapid transit system, and Chicago was extending
its subway and elevated lines into new territory. San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Montreal, and many other
cities were making serious plans for construction of
rapid transit systems. To be sure, the new electric
railways bore little outward resemblance to the col-
orful interurbans of a half century before, but be-
neath their sleek and functional modernity the very
same principles of clean, quiet, and efficient electric
transportation were at work.

If the Buckeye Specials, Hoosierlands, and Comets
that once raced importantly through the countryside
in the glamorous days of the interurban era were
gone forever, a new and different era of electric
transportation was perhaps at hand. X

Interurban and Rural Railways

in the United States, Canada, and Mexico



1 HIS' directory is based upon a 1922 Electric Railway Census by the Depart-
ment of Commerce, with corrections, additions, and deletions by the author and
others. Companies listed operated bona fide interurbans, rural trolley lines, or
suburban electric lines with interurban characteristics. Companies which operated
street railways only are excluded.

Company names are normally those under which the railways were listed in
1922. Successor companies and previous names, when they were well known, are
shown in italics. Steam railroad control or affiliation is shoivn in parentheses.
Companies are entered under the state in which headquarters were maintained.
NOTES

*Company still electrically operated for passenger service in 1965.
f Company still electrically operated for freight service only in 1965.
All companies were operated by overhead trolley exclusively except as indicated
below:

(1) Third-rail operation.

(2) Third-rail and overhead-trolley operation.

(3) Underground-conduit and overhead-trolley operation.

(4) Gas-electric operation.
