A secondhand sightseeing trolleybus. Chicago Illinois USA. August 2011.

I took this photo in Chicago late one night, back in August of 2011.

A local automotive Muffler shop located on West Addison Street near North Lawndale Avenue, also has a side business operating trolley bus charters.

This bus, was parked near their driveway apron.
A real electric powered streetcar operation with tracks in the street and overhead wires to maintain, is much too costly by todays standards.

These buses wich are built on commercial truck frames, have bodies that resemble the electric city streetcars of decades past. Their nostalgic look and the flexibility in operation, have more than made them popular in recent years.
