The Overhead Wire: More Savannah Streetcar

The Overhead Wire: More Savannah Streetcar

I can envision these running through downtown Athens (or Atlanta). They'd be especially welcome on Lumpkin, Baxter, Milledge & Boulevard, and they would draw attention to the more pleasant aspects of Athens' history.

The grades would likely be prohibitive on Lumpkin & Baxter (both must get close to 15% in places--you're flirting with the limit of adhesion at around 12%), but just imagine Prince Avenue as a streetcar boulevard, with a loop on Clayton and Washington in downtown and a branch up Milledge to five-points!
