Some still running

Restored street cars and interurban cars are still running at the Illinois Railway Museum, Union, Il, about 50 miles NW of Chicago. It's the largest railway museum in the US and, April through November, runs at least one restored street car every weekend on a mile-long loop. This past summer about 60 electric cars ran on one day -- not just sat for viewing, but ran on tracks. The IRM is run entirely by volunteers and has over 400 cars and engines.

Timely Photograph

The last Baltimore streetcar ran on November 3, 1963. Thus, this weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the end of streetcar service in Baltimore. The Park Terminal, which was built in 1909, was the largest streetcar barn in the Baltimore system. It still stands at Druid Hill and Fulton Avenues.
