At one time, electrified freight interurbans operated throughout the United States. Yet in the late 1990s, just three remained in service. Toiling under the wires as if time had passed them by, these survivors depended upon an assortment of antique motors to keep them rolling.

Pentrex traveled to Wisconsin in 1998 to record the East Troy Electric, which still pulled freight on an as-needed basis. The East Troy Electric utilized motor L-9 when it took part in moving fourteen special loads of stainless steel tubing. The next stop was San Antonio where Texas Transportation ran electric freight motors through the city's streets to serve the iconic Pearl Brewery. Then we headed to Mason City, Iowa to view multiple motors on Iowa Traction. A ride aboard one of their historic motors gave us a great view of the motorman at work. During our visits, you'll learn why these railroads continued to operate their old freight motors in modern times. If you love traction, you'll be thrilled by the sight of these antique electrics at work in Juice, the Final Three Electric Interurban Freight Survivors!

It is a shame we don't have more Trolley Lines today...I grew up with the YVTC steeple cab and a box cab...took it for granted as a teenager. Oh to have those days back! This video brings them back in great fashion.

Great piece on some historical operations. I appreciated the brief background on the prior evolution of each line. The quality was good even though some of the footage is not the newest.

OVERALL this was a good DVD. it showed how a relic of the past is helping business today. it did not relate, however, tell the reason interurbans were mainly used for. To move people from point to point prior to the general use of autos. if you are looking for the feeling of a tourist trolley ride that is a reminder of yesteryear it is not there. I was a tourist on this some years back and hoped to be reminded of my trip, I was disappointed. I am glad we do still have reminders around.

Additional remarks by REYNOLDS HOFFMAN:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
