    Complete line side coverage of 70% of Boston's old streetcar lines. This is the most complete video of Boston trolleys that I have seen! You see type 5s in every possible angle, some type 4 shots. Amazing picture quality. If you're a Boston transit historian, MassDOT urban planner, or just somebody who loves American trolleys, you need to see this!
