Tomorrow Never Knows - a streetcar story
About this creation
May 21st, 1966 - The Ironwood streetcar line, isolated and on it's last few serviceable trolleys, hobbles slowly along. On this day, we see Birney Safety Car number 13 bump along on uneven and well-worn track around the corner at River and Main streets. This 1920 vintage streetcar looks worse for wear, with it's faded paint and worn wood-work, it's tired motorman operator looking as sad as the car itself. Nobody knows how long the line will last, as closure is expected at any time.

Happily, this line will not close as expected. The trolleys and tracks are rescued by the city of Ironwood itself and a group of pioneering rail transit lovers. Within 3 years, the line will be completely renewed and ready for the next 45+ years of operation, for generations yet to come (as of 1966, that is).



A close up of the Birney Safety Car.
