If you would like to get a better idea of what it was like to ride in an interurban car, you can do so by visiting The Works museum in Newark. On display there is a car which was built by the Jewett Car Company in Newark. The car was used on the Lake Shore Electric Railway, which was an interurban that ran in northern Ohio.
