Route 23

This line last ran in 1992. Trackage and overhead is still in place. There is occasional "historic" trolley service along different parts of the line, but even that is rare now. It is unclear if this line will ever reopens. At one time Route 23 was  considered the longest streetcar line in the country. Let's hope some day it is restored.
