Hi Zach, Oh yes! Our Old Pueblo Trolley. The City Of Tucson is actually going to extend the streetcar tracks on Congress Street to the west side of the Santa Cruz River and east on University Boulevard one block to Fremont and run modern streetcars similiar to Phoenix.

 

Hopefully, the heitage streetcar line can stay. If you'd like more information on our heitage streetcar line, please visit http://www.oldpueblotrolley.org

The Streetcar is still running? That the Pueblo Trolley?

Awesome! Have you ever been to the Museum? And you guys are getting a Light Rail down there too? I hope it will be a little more interesting then the one we have here in Phoenix..

 

Id like to come to Tucson; never been yet. I heard Union Pacific rolls through town. Any EX-Southern Pacific equipment there?

Hi Zach, No, none ex Southern Pacific equipment from what I've seen aside from the restored Southern Pacific steam locomotive and tender at the transportation museum (free).

 

I'm noticing that Union Pacific often places a diesel on the end of the train. Are these kind of like the old caboose or are they there for another reason?

 

Yes, our new lightrail line is called The Modern Streetcar - reason being is the vintage streetcars will continue to operate the line, and they will be extended to serve the entire line fom the west side of the Santa Cruz River on West Congress Street to the U Of A at North Fremont and East University Boulevard.

 

We also have a free Downtown shuttle, called the Downtown Loop, which is very handy and operates Weekdays 6:30am to 5:30pm every half hour using a mini bus.
