At the 2013, 25th Festival of Model Tramways at Fairfield Halls, The Arnhem Gallery, Croydon, Surrey, Britain on July 20th 2013, I had a discussion with at least two exhibitionists about why cannot the 'trolley pole' on a tram not be referred to as the 'pantograph' as I felt both are joining to a power wire overhead?
I put this question because the word 'trolley' has the negative meaning word 'troll' which means demon etc in it. I also felt that the word 'trolley car' used for a tram in United State of America, is also negative meaning due to the word 'troll' meaning demon etc in it.
The two exhibitionists I recall felt 'trolley pole' and 'pantograph' were two different things. I rejected this and am still not able to accept this. I prefer the word 'pantograph' be used for 'trolley pole' and instead of 'trolley car' the word 'tram' should be used. Because the function and principle is more or less the same, the word 'pantograph' be used for 'trolley pole'.
There is a proprietary and commercial reason I feel as the reason for not calling a 'trolley pole', a 'pantograph'. From a visual perspective, both are joining to the power wire overhead. The 'trolley pole' or should I call it now a 'pantograph', is visually better from an aesthetic point of view where there is only an aerial pole sort of pantograph in comparison to the monster-industrial-looking-pantograph. This aerial pole sort of pantograph (previously stupidly referred to a the trolley pole) defines the tram, the different shape or the monster-industrial-looking-pantograph is very ugly visually.
I therefore cannot ever consider monster-industrial-looking-pantograph for a tram, they should not be incorporated into town and village and city landscape, only the aerial-pole sort of pantograph should be used on the tram, nor could I ever consider calling a tram anything other than a tram and neither calling the aerial pole sort of pantograph with a nonsense word.
Prabhupada (Hare ?rishna Founder) signaled automated initiations via diecasted Tram Modelling in November 1977 however this order has not been followed by the usurpers(thieves). The time that has elapsed since the usurpers (thieves) in the Hare ?rishna Movement removed the Hare ?rishna Founder: His Divine Grace A C Bha?tivedanta Swami Prabhupada from spiritually being the initiating spiritual master contrary to his wishes:
