Trolley

I'm always in a qunadry on certain heritage operations as to classify them as a museum, or as transit. This is one of them. Since it operates in public streets, I classify it as a heritage transit service. Most of the line is on the original right-of-way of the original Ft Collins Streetcar system.

This line uses an original Fort Collins single-trucked Birney car #21. There are talks of extending the line into downtown Fort Collins. Personally I love this line! If I was to move to Colorado, I would want to move to Fort Collins and live along the street the trolley is on!
