Oh, yes. Until December 1949, we lived on Drexel Drive in University City. In the summer of 1949, my parents got me a library card at the University City Public Library. I was allowed (at the age of 7!) to go down to the foot of our street and take the streetcar to the U City Loop, go to the library, turn in a book and check out a new one, then ride the streetcar back to Drexel. I think the cost was a nickel. A lo-o-o-ong time ago... :-)

Kenosha WI and Toronto still run PCC cars. Anyone else?

Ya, Dave, Kenosha laid new tracks on a short route about 20 years ago. It's a boondogle, as hardly anyone rides them most of the time. Often it's just the engineer going around empty.

Now the Mayor wants to add more tracks because the Federal Gov't. will pay about 80% of the installation cost = about $12 Million.

It's a waste of taxpayers money.

Just my opinion.

Keith

San Francisco has a large fleet of PCC's, Peter Witt, and other various vintage streetcars that see daily use on several lines.

I remember those things, loved to ride them when I was a kid, Kansas City got rid of there's years before. When my dad was a kid, they would hide in the bushes and the trolly stoped to unload and pic up passengers, they'd run out and pull the cord on back and hook the car from the overhead power lines. They learned all kinds of new cuss words.
