End of the line

This historic streetcar seems to have reached the end of the line. The European-built tram is part of the collection of the Vancouver Downtown Historic Railway, a heritage line that runs between Granville Island and the Olympic Village station. This particular streetcar is sitting near the intersection of Ash Street and West 6th Avenue and looking rather forlorn behind the chain link fence and the grass growing at its base.

The Vancouver Downtown Historic Railway did not operate during the Olympics to make way for the special Bombardier train that ran during the Games. The railway web site says the line is scheduled to reopen this year, but so far the grass keeps growing and nothing else seems to be happening.
