I'm surprised how much street running there is in the US. I think the most
famous is probably the South Shore in Michigan City on its' run from Chicago
to South Bend. Originally an Interurban (and still carrying passengers)
but it also carries coal trains to and from the steel mills in the area.
Put Michigan City into the youtube search and you'll find some examples.
I also came across street running in Fort Collins (between Denver and
Cheyenne) a few years ago. The Metra Electric route to 93rd St doesn't
quite run in the street (well, the bits I've seen) but it's a close run
thing as it runs down the median on an unfenced residential road. For many
years there was a railway track along the San Francisco Embarcadero (where
the F line streetcars now run).
