What a great idea. It gets people around town, and it just makes you smile when you see these streetcars. It's not like I'm a trainspotter or anything. It's just one of those "sense of city" things that makes the difference between being in a boring place and an interesting one. Good work San Francisco! I know the TTC still retains two of these old cars for special events and a summer run through Harbourfront, but I still wonder: why can't Toronto be more imaginative? We have the tracks, we have the lines. We used to have more than 700 of those old streetcars, which we sold or scrapped. What would be wrong with coming up with something interesting like San Francisco's line?
