Whether it’s the Canal St. line or the St. Charles Ave. line, the streetcars in New Orleans are awesome! At least I found them that way. In fact, I would head downtown on the St. Charles St. line just to ride on it; like a kid finishing his carnival ride, then getting right back in line to do it again. And what was most alluring were the sounds; the churning of the gears, the rattling as it picked up speed and slowed down. Rhythmical, almost familiar, and somehow comforting. Hmmm… think I’ll get back in line.
