  1. Mike Etlicher Says:

    Does a comprehensive listing of TC streetcar remnants still in place exist? (Exposed tracks, power stations, bridges, etc. – not artifacts in museums or collections.)

    Matt Anderson reply on October 29th, 2009:

    Thanks for the comment. The book Twin Cities by Trolley lists many of the surviving structures.
