New Orleans Streetcar
Postcard US-1720411 shows a red streetcar on the Canal Street Line near downtown New Orleans, LA on September 6, 2010. There are currently three additional operating streetcar lines in New Orleans: The St. Charles Avenue Line, the Riverfront Line, and the Loyola Avenue Line. The St. Charles Avenue Line is the longest of the four and the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world since the first half of the 19th century in 1830s, only interrupted by Hurricane Katrina between August 2005 and December 2006.
