September 2014

Making tracks II
The equipment, time and place is different, but the idea remains the same. Here, a crew installs curved-track at 12th and Race for the Cincinnati Streetcar, set to begin operation in Sept. 2016.

Making tracks I
Not much is known about streetcar track construction circa 1919. A welding crew pauses long enough for a photo at 8th and State. We know that the crew chief (center) was Tom Gussett and his crew was Matt Budo (left) and Tony Roberto. We also know from records that the rail was called "Trilby rail" and came in three-foot sections weighing 140 pounds each.

 
In memoriam
It has become a modern touchstone, Sept. 11, 2001. A national tragedy that will be forever burned into our memories. Join Metro as we honor the lives of the lost and the fallen.
