The San Pedro Red Cars are popular because they are "authentic". Modifying them is wrong, and is against historical preservation. I suggest you take a fact-finding trip to New Orleans LA. The St. Charles Streetcar are authentic, and have not been modified. They are boarded just at the Red Car trolley's were when they ran all over Los Angeles. If NOLA can run them exactly as they were 100 years ago, San Pedro can too. They are trolleys ... not light rail. Shame on you.
