As the official blogger for The San Diego Historic Streetcars project, I’d like to welcome you all! Here you’ll be reading about our progress in bringing back the historic Class 1 Streetcars to San Diego, California.
We’re here to help continue the work that was initiated by local antique dealer and collector Christian Chaffee ten years ago. At the time, the redevelopment of downtown San Diego had not been finished and because future traffic patterns were unknown, the presence of fixed rail was not feasible. However, now that downtown redevelopment is complete, there’s never been a better time to bring back these historic landmarks to help revitalize and further develop all of the innercity neighborhoods and business districts of San Diego.
Thank you for reading, I look forward to keeping you updated. Please feel free to leave comments and send e-mails if you’d like to hear more about, or voice your support for, an endeavor that will benefit all of the residents of San Diego.
