November 2015


Here it comes...
The feeling was electric as the crowds gathered to welcome the first streetcar's arrival in Cincinnati. Once operational next year, the Cincinnati Streetcar will mark the return of a transportation mode that hasn't been here since 1951.

...there it goes
The streetcar's delivery was eagerly anticipated by hundreds; its progress was tracked by local media; and it's arrival was met with a cheer as it was towed up Race Street to be tucked into the Maintenance and Operating Facility. The remaining four cars will be delivered this year and early next year and testing will begin in November.

This chaotic scene depicts streetcar track reconstruction before 1920. It was taken looking north on Gilbert Avenue at Peebles Corner. If you look closely, you will see a man perched precariously on a ladder presumably doing work on the overhead wires.
