Let's be honest folks. The past is some what of a mine field and the dance is all but done.

The generation that last rode electric streetcars and interurban trains in daily service has come and gone. And the generations that have come after have no connection to the preserved electric streetcars and interurban trains. To them, these are just big objects, that evoke a misplaced sense of nostalgia for times gone by.

Successful museums of any kind make a connection in some way to their visitors. Base of those Yelp reviews, a good guess is that those visitors made no such connections. Their "word of mouth" is likely to be less than convincing to entice potential visits by others.

Kudos to folks still willing to volunteer their time on permitted projects and operations, but the days of relevance are passing by faster than traffic on Highway 12.
