“Little Americas”

“Little Americas: is what the trolleys were called when they first arrived in Lisbon.  Why “little americas”? The trolleys were bought from New York. Lisbon has a lot of lines with many Trolleys on the road and a modern light rail system as well.  

The Trolleys navigate the hills well and provide transportation for both tourist and local people.  In Porto there are trolleys and a Trolley museum. The museum was housed in the early electricity generation plant built when the electric service was started in 1895.
