I wonder if it would be possible to rig express wires that ran closer to the curb in order to provide a limited-stop trolley service? There might be issues with uneven wear of the carbon pick-up shoes if the trolley ran for long distances without being directly under the overhead.
why not just put a switch into/out of the local lines, where the express need to stop? more complexity, but i dont see why it couldnt be done.
