Portugal: Land of the Semi-Convertible

From Donald Nevin's travels in 1960, 1970, and 1973, we will see the still-partly-extant trolley systems of Lisbon and Porto and the now-extinct trolley system of Coimbra. Donald will also show us some trackless trolleys, buses, steam trains, steamboats, funiculars, and a giant elevator designed by Gustav Eiffel.
