Streetcar Lines and Transit info
In New Orleans, we call our vintage electric rail vehicles streetcars – never trolleys. No one knows exactly why or when New Orleanians made the distinction; in most places, the terms are used interchangeably. The most likely reason for the distinction is the pride that New Orleanians take in being the first city west of the Allegheny Mountains to implement passenger rail service. ''Streetcars'' rolled through New Orleans for more than 60 years before the ''trolley'', a device that transmits electric current to the motors, was used to power them.
