The Delmar Loop Trolley is in St. Louis.  The route begins at the University City Public Library and it picks up the route of the old #10 Delmar streetcar line and follows it to DeBaliviere and turns right.  It follows DeBalivere to Forest Park and terminates at the History Museum.

How wonderful, @PatrickR720159. I can almost picture people taking an extra moment to breath and look away from their devices. Mind my asking, where is the Delmar Loop trolley, that's sounding like California to me?

Streetcars are making a return to our cities

Message 3 of 3

Many people that older than I am would remember the days of the streetcars.  When World War II hit, several streetcar routes has been temporarly saved from closure.  Now days, some of the old routes or portions of them are coming back.  Either in new light rail form or in modern day low-floor streetcars.  Thus running over a part of a streetcar route or two we used to have.  The Blue line MetroLink route follows part of the old #11 University line.  And now the Delmar Loop trolley travels over a portion of the old #10 Delmar line.  My father told me that getting rid of the streetcars was a stupid thing to do.  Now days, much younger people are starting to see what much of us older people used to travel around on.  Each time a teenager would step on a vintage streetcar, they get taken back in time to the days when we much older generation people were young.
