Once upon a time, many major cities had streetcars or light gauge rail for "commuting". At some point in time, most of them were removed and the original rails disappeared. There is indeed a trend now to bring some of that back.
A Streetcar line was restored in Minneapolis some time ago. They have two cars, one is largely made of wood, while the other is primarily steel. It runs over a few miles of restored track and costs just $2.00 to take a ride. They have even reproduced the original tokens (above).
The service-personnel dress in period-correct uniforms and are volunteers as I understand.
Another one of those attractions local to me that I never took the time to go enjoy. One day last summer I finally got over there. I rode each of the two cars and had a great time!
The older streetcar below that is largely furnished in wood has a wood burning stove to heat the passenger area.
The interior of the metal-constructed car has original works of advertising for local businesses from back in the day.
The interior shots were taken with my Fuji XE-1 and the Fuji 16mm F/1.4 lens.
Some of the more distant outdoor shots I used the same camera with the Fuji 35mm F/2.0 lens.
Thanks for looking!
