Has the near-disappearance of the Penn Central line made a revival of this project impossible? I guess the better question is -- how much of the P-C line has been built upon?
There would've been extensions and perhaps new lines over the years. This could've changed Dayton quite drastically. Dayton would've clearly got the TOD concept.
So is the Heritage transit line still a pending/active plan/project?
Does anyone have a map of where the trolleybus lines run? It seems to me that this would be a good place to begin talk about any trolley for Dayton.
He passed away sometime around 1990, around the age of 90.

It seems to me that this would be a good place to begin talk about any trolley for Dayton.www.daytontrolleys.net theres a map there. Active wire as shown on the map means the wire is charged and maintained, but over the next few years the trolleybus rolling stock fleet is shrinking due to age, so any route shown as active wire may be operated with diesels on any given day. New trolleybuses coming within the next 2-5 years, which should restore the full map with about 30-40 active units in the fleet. For the time being the consensus seems to be that any Federal infrastructure grant monies will be spent on modernizing and upgrading the trolleybus infrastructure, not streetcar or light rail.
