We had just a small amount of snow, but it was enough to make me go out and take pictures!
It was spectacular, and in particular, the white snow on the white blossom of the Bradford Pears was interesting to see. The poor daffodils in the front yard seem defeated by the snow, and I’m not sure if they will bounce back.
It is interesting to see the Loop Trolley development as it has progressed, and to see how the parts all fit together. When they put down the tracks along DeBaliviere, there was one section, near the junction with Pershing, that was not completed – everything else was down and cemented, but not that part. Now we can see that this is to be an area where there is a cross over, where the single track is divided so that trolleys can pass.
Next, I assume, will be the tracks across Pershing itself!
The Trolley power cable at the DeBaliviere.Delmar junction is up!
(It’s harder to take pictures of wires against the sky than you would imagine!)
Where Delmar goes over the Metrolink at Des Peres the Trolley Route goes from two tracks to one (or one track to two if you are traveling west). It looks like there is just some final concrete pouring to do, then this section will be complete.
As I walked along Delmar the other day, I happened to spot that they were putting up the power cable near the junction of Delmar and Hamilton. What a big roll of wire!
The Trolley Shed for the Delmar Loop Trolley is getting nearer completion every day, as work continues on the tracks that will take the trolleys to the workshop.
