Cincinnati interurban light rail system map, 1912

Regular price $50.00 $0.00

In the 1910s, the electric rail network depicted here was the principal driver of greater Cincinnati’s growth.  There was just one problem: it was a gigantic pain to get downtown.  Unlike contemporary networks in Portland, Indianapolis and Los Angeles, Cincinnati’s interurban rail lines had no dedicated tracks to reach downtown and no centralized terminal facility. Thus, rush hour trains filled with suburban commuters would have to creep through the entire city of Cincinnati at a snail’s pace behind the local streetcars.  The city fathers' answer to this traffic congestion was to build a subway.
