I am one who mourns the loss of the Milwaukee. One historical point which is endlessly interesting to me is the supposed offer of GE to close the gap between the Rocky Mountain and Pacific electrifications. Does anyone know what technology would have been employed? Would the combined system continue to be 3400 Volt DC? How serious was the proposal (I gather that it was quite serious)?
Utah's interurban network is being rebuilt-who'd a thunked it?!
