Thanks for bringing this latest slice of New Orleans' people and trains to life in this story. I appreciate your ongoing passion for the city that had gone through so much and is continuing to find its wounded way by keeping in touch with what has made it so unique in the past.

And I can't wait to get your take about those streetcars on the St. Charles Line when you visit your son Aidan as he spends the next four years at Tulane. Maybe we can even head over to Ray's New Boom Boom Room for a fish fry!

Always loved the strretcars in New Orleans. Bet your new friend Allen did not think to tell you that frequently a mother would rent a streetcar for her child's birthday party. This was always fun and easy for the Moms.

Everyone would meet at the trolly barn and get on for a great time as the streetcar made its circuit. The birthday child's mom would supply refreshments and it was a rolicky, rolling birthday celebration!

Wow, May Louise, you must have loads of stories like this from your days as a student and then resident of New Orleans. I know that the streetcars are every bit as important to NOLA as beignets, po boys,and jazz and a truckload of other kinds of music.

Thanks for this one,another nugget to add to this story!
