On a recent Sunday evening, I rode the trolley in uptown Dallas, Texas. The ride was a real treat, not only because it is free, but because Leo the conductor enjoyed talking about the trolley and its routes. Turns out that he and I have the same birthday, July 19. Leo drives a 50 minute route. After a couple of stops, Joy and Sharon got on board. This was their first trolley ride. They posed for photos. The next to last photo is your intrepid chronicler, myself, feeling very 1940-ish, riding the rails and wearing my fedora.
