Seattle trolleys missing from the waterfront
A lost favorite
I just read Danny Westneat’s column about options for the iconic Seattle trolleys [“Hey, arena! Save our trolleys” NWWednesday, June 20].
I think he is absolutely right; they were a favorite part of the Seattle waterfront scene before banned from their popular tracks because their maintenance barn had to be replaced by a hill!
I think that putting a new barn down by either the stadium or the Sodo home of Starbucks would provide a vital link between parking, the waterfront, the ferries, Pioneer Square and the stadiums. Restoring them would solve many problems, some of them that have just started and some long-standing ones.
The other thing is that by restoring the trolleys, Seattle would be saving huge sums of money and walking the recycling walk in a big way.
