Walking the Streetcar line

yellow railroad tie

I was walking along the Excelsior streetcar line, like a hobo with a digital camera, when I noticed a yellow railroad tie. I thought; "This must be the signal for the streetcar conductor to do something". ( sound horn) - Looking ahead I noticed a gentleman peering out from the Excelsior Museum pole barn, where streetcars are being restored. I wandered in and he gave me a detailed, impromptu tour of "The Winona", The"1239", "The 78" and other streetcars being lovingly restored.

The barn was dark and I resorted to using a flash with my pocket camera #2.

From my archives - last summer:
The 1239
