Yes; he would have loved it! For those that don't know, Bob was an EV
pioneer (he designed the CitiCar, for example). He also was a railroad
engineer for years (for "damntrack", as he called it), and drove
electric and diesel locomotives.
Of course, powering trains and buses from overhead wires is a very old
idea, that has enjoyed considerable success. When I worked in Seattle
WA, I regularly rode the electric city buses. In fact, that inspired
this little ditty:
