Portland Vintage Trolleys St Louis MetroLink Delmar Loop Trolley

I’ve been aware of The Loop Trolley project for some time. I normally call it Delmar Loop Trolley – route would encompass more than just Delmar. I was aware that Portland had sold some of it’s Vintage Trolleys to St Louis. I was aware that delivery had been delayed.

What I must have not been aware of or forgot about – was that this rolling stock had been delivered to St. Louis.

Riding MetroLink to Forest Park for an event – train had stop signal right at MetroLink Ewing Yard maintenance facility. As I looked out window I saw these trolleys. Wasn’t expecting to see them – wasn’t aware deliver had been made.

I didn’t think my first try achieved any decent video. So I tried again later. I had an ALL DAY MetroLink ticket – so after Forest Park event – I took 2 more rides – with what I felt were same results. With no stop signals – train travels to fast past this location to get good video.

Since it was getting late and I didn’t want to be a railyard trespasser – I gave up taking another try.

Looking at results above – video isn’t horrible – but not as good as I would have liked it to be.

I included 2 screen captures below that give a decent picture of the trolleys.
