Ride Trivia Quiz Answer

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Chicago's first electrically powered L -- which had a third rail and ran for three miles -- was torn down within a year of opening to the public. Why?

The line was built for the 1893 World's Fair, and torn down when the fair was over. Len Marcus was the first with the right answer. If Len can send me his mailing address, I can send him his prize.
