06-03-11 PHOTOS: Baltimore Streetcars and LRVs

In March 2006 I took a small trip with a Baltimore trolley enthusiast to see the new double tracked northern segment of the Baltimore light rail. Also I got a chance to take some photos down at ye Olde Baltimore Streetcar Museum where they recently bought a fleet of Firesale SEPTA PCC's.

Anyway, I don't have much time here. The photos can be found at:

Two-car train leaving the Pan-Timonium station to relay at Texas.  For two years the light rail line was shut down for double tracking and was only just restored with increased service over much of the line.  This station serves as a new northern terminal for half the trains.

Open window on HHP-8 #4913 at Penn Sta. Not a good idea to leave the window open in Baltimore...train might not be there on Monday.
