Many thanks to Paul for that fantastic rundown of the streetcar transfer system. Satisfied my curiosity concerning the ability of conductors, in the old days, to know when you tried to hand one of them in improper transfer. Even when done unintentionally, and in all innocence such an act would earn you a chilling stare and a strong admonition.
