SPECIALTY NICHES: Revised federal regulations meant that a local transit agency had to stop running trolleys in its fleet, which gave Rix Limousine, a Pennsylvania operator, a new market opportunity.  Owner Rick Stancombe showed off his trolley for the local newspaper, and told the reporter he's already booking summer trips in his classic trolley for 2009 and 2010. Of course it' s not really a trolley running on train tracks, even though it looks just like one. It was built 20 years ago by specialty manufacturer Molly Trolley. Operators with a few specialty vehicles in their fleets, including vintage cars, usually do well booking them for weddings, family reunions, anniversaries, and other special events. -- J.L.
