SD Trolley 1010 SDTS

San Diego Trolley # 1010, A Siemens-Duwag U2 from 1978, works the northbound Blue Line at the San Diego Train Station..Taken by a Nikon D40x with a 18-55mm VR kit lens (at 18)

 

The block of trolleys that this belongs to (1001-14) is due for retirement soon – This block were the first streetcars active in San Diego since the demise of the San Diego Electric, back in the 1940's!... this block has spent most of it's time on the Blue Line, which never gets more than 5 miles inland...

 

Note that the Blue Line no longer (2015) comes to the SD Train station: the line was truncated to America Plaza, across the street from the SD Train Station... and that the 1### block of trolleys weren't retired until Jan, 2015!
