    Thank you for this post. I found one more photo of this system on Pinterest. It has always been a mystery to me how tram systems (lines) have opened and then closed within only a few years. This happened way back when, when financial problems caused street railway companies to go out of business. It is even more strange that a tram line was opened in the mid-50’s when entire tram systems were closing worldwide – only to shut down just before the beginning of the light rail Renaissance.
    In the USA, the Leonard “Subway”, the heritage line in Detroit, the starter light rail line in Buenos Aires, and now the heritage line in St. Louis have opened and closed within a few short years of opening.
    I love small, obscure tram lines. Thanks again.
