LOST STREETCAR OF THE WEEK




A feature of lost transit around the America's (A whole woods full of dumped Trolleys in MD?)

Happy passengers, busy commuters, holiday shoppers are now but ghosts, the door opens, but nobody cares anymore. Wasps and mice have populated the forlorn car bodies. Sometimes gone, sometimes nearly hopeless, and occasionally completely rebuildable, how many of these long lost rail cars will find their way back to civilization? to museums? or the tender loving care of historians and preservationists? How many others will simply fade into the elements from which they came?

TAKE A FREE TOUR OF THE JACKSONVILLE SKYWAY

The arguments rage to this date, "Should have never been built," "waste of taxpayer money," "Doesn't go anywhere," "Nobody rides it..." etc. Bottom line is we have it, and it is finally showing signs of life. Simple extensions to the Stadium, San Marco, and the area of Blue Cross in North Riverside would turn this little train around. Addition of Park and Ride garages and multimodal transit terminals at the end points would bring on the crowds. The video must have been shot on a Sunday Morning, as downtown is certainly as packed with life as any other major City on weekdays. Jacksonville is a city of Bikes, joggers, walkers, buses and cars, one almost wonders how the photographer managed to find this quiet moment.
