are a few scenes of the tracks and overhead wires on the Little Rock/North
Little Rock streetcar 2.1 mile line taken on Sunday, August 29, 2004. There
was a test run along the line, at least in North Little Rock, last Friday
morning at 10 a.m. Sorry, no photos since I didn't know about it. At
the intersection of Broadway and Maple in North Little Rock during the test
(I was told), the traffic lights in all directions changed to red when the
streetcar crossed that intersection.
Also today the submarine RAZORBACK was docked at its new home on the Arkansas
River in North Little Rock. It will be on display and open for tours. Thousands
attended, many past crew members of this World War II (1944) submarine, which
was obtained from Turkey, where its been for many years. Heres a link to
photos of it being towed to its new home:
