This 84 page book covers the history of the Halifax Street Railway from 1866 through 1949, when tracks were lifted on March 26 and the last of the Birney cars ran in the streets of Nova Scotia s capital city Halifax always had a small street railway system and economic conditions conspired to keep the system from modernizing in the inter war years Heavy use during WW2 pretty well wore out the infrastructure and the cars and by 1949 the decision was made to switch the system to electric trolleybuses that were seen as having all the advantages of quiet, clean electric transportation without some of the major cost disadvantages of rails in the streets There is very little available in print on this interesting transit operation an I have not read all of it but it has a real good collection of pictures and historywell worth the money.
