  "Many American cities use or are returning to streetcars to quell congestion.  Some systems use modern cars, similar to the "L," while others use heritage cars (what I'd like to see) that replicate the classic appearance of older models.  Some cities, such as New Orleans, San Francisco and Philadelphia, have long has streetcar systems and use a mixture of old and newer equiment."
