P.S. The locals in Freepot nicknamed it the "Toonerville Trolley" after that classic comic strip about a trolley having a hard time staying on the rails. I understand the trolley would rock from side to side as it headed across swampland in Freeport, threatening to derail, which, I believe, it did from time to time. Hence the nickname! DK
