Have wire maps for Dayton but not Edmonton. Ed has 150 trolley buses so they must have has quite the system.

It might not be that big.  Depending on headways and route lengths, 150 buses may be able to cover only four to five routes.

The daily commute is part of everyday life but I get two rides a day out of it. Paul

Does Edmonton still run trolleybuses?  Someone told me they shut down.  Was this only temporary?

If you do not get help anywhere else, you might try leavig a message at:

bulletin@nyera.org.   I think that is the approriate email address for the the Electric Railroadaers Association newsletter.  Cannot be certain at the moment, however.

Check the Interurbans trolley bus books. Or this site might help

Hi

Try this Edmonton Organization. When we rode the radial over the Edmonton High Bridge this spring, members of this organization at the carb barn/shop had a lot of info (and history) to share.
