Road Name History:
The CSR was established in 1859 and would become one of more than a dozen streetcar lines in the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. In 1880, they began acquiring other lines in the city culminating with the Mount Auburn Cable Railway and Cincinnati & Columbia Street Railway in 1896. CSR was unusual in that they used a 2-wire-2-trolley-poll system. This was due to a conflict with a local phone company who claimed the return current in the rails was causing interference to the phone service. The conversion from streetcar to trolley bus was made much easier by the pre-existing double wire system. The rail service lasted until 1951. The following year, the operation was renamed Cincinnati Transit Commission.
