Does your layout feature or include streetcars or other rail-transit equipment?

If so, would you mind sharing some details about your trolley/transit modeling?

Photos would be great, too.

Thanks, in advance, for your responses.

I am part of a group that has a layout with a street car running back and forth in the background.  At the moment, it is a single ended car that backs up and goes forward.  I hope a some point to convert it to a double ended car with automatic trolley poles.   We use a simple circuit controlled by reed switches at the ends of the track.
