Next stop, St. Louis, for vintage streetcars once used in Seattle

Metro’s vintage Australian streetcars are headed to St. Louis. The streetcars can no longer be used here because Seattle’s modern streetcars run on a lower profile using electronic controls.

The streetcars were once used on the George Benson Waterfront Streetcar Line, a corridor that was destroyed to make room for the Olympic Sculpture Park.

Metro can no longer use the Melbourne trolleys because Seattle’s modern streetcars run on a lower profile using electronic controls.

The cars are to be used on the Delmar Loop Trolley, a 2.2-mile heritage trolley line in St. Louis.
