Aren't the overhead wires ugly?
Modern streetcars and light rail use much smaller wires than those used by Nineteenth Century streetcar systems. And now there is usually only one wire, not two like we used to have in Cincinnati. Along tree-lined streets, the wires get lost in the foliage. See for yourself: look at the high-resolution photos of the overhead wires in the Portland Streetcar album under the “PICS” tab.
