Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Toledo interurbans last ran in December 1949. The interurbans were a great loss to a city that was a major transportation hub in its own right. They would be replaced by buses, but nothing could replace the feeling of riding a trolley to work or taking the family to a movie by trolley. Today there is very little that remains of the interurban lines. Sometimes the old rails are visible when street repairs are being made. Toledo Trolleys was written to preserve the rich history of the trolleys that served citizens faithfully for many years.

About the Author

Kirk F. Hise has a lifelong interest in railroads and electric railways of the Toledo area. He began employment with the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in 1955 as a brakeman and retired in 1988 as a yard conductor. Hise now lives in Genoa. Edward J. Pulhuj's passion for railroading began with childhood trips to visit his grandfather, who worked for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. Pulhuj is an avid collector of Toledo railroad information and is planning to organize a historical society to preserve Toledo railroading history.
