The Trolley Bus Subculture


I have a romance with trolley buses: they are cute, they are comfy and they electrocute people from time to time. I bought a monthly trolley pass to explore all the trolleys in town. Not willing to get lost, I went on the net, searching for the itineraries. There I discovered a whole subculture of trolley bus lover: there were unofficial websites devoted to the trolleys and their counterparts buses and trams; there were archive photos of the retired machines I used to ride when I was little; there was information on each type of trolley bus with detailed description; there was help for the fans on how to take care of the trolleys; there were external links to other unofficial websites, devoted to the same creatures; there were even poem and songs dedicated to that species of public transport. Now I regret going on the net, because if I were ignorant of all the trolley-bus subculture, my romance with trolleys would have been an exclusive and intimate one.
