Well documented and researched on the transit system of New Orleans, pictures of various models of streetcars that had been in use on various sections of the city. Many lines (routes) used only one model on their systems, but all interchanged at Canal Street.
At one time, this was the most affordable, convenient and quickest way to get around the city and its suburbs, you could go completely around most of the city on one fare, using the transfer system and the various lines.
I often would take out of town visitors for a ride on the streetcars as they covered the entire city in a very complete web of lines, and the scenery was always changing with the neighborhoods of N.O.
Not just a documentary on the types of equipment in usage, but of the development of the distinctive neighborhoods, made possible by this system. Additional information provided on historical events made possible by this city-wide transit system, more diverse than any other city in the country, similar to subway systems of N.Y.C., but above ground!
