Special Feature - High Level Bridge Streetcars - July 1, 2005


  In addition to running streetcars at Fort Edmonton Park, the Edmonton Radial Railway Society also operates streetcars across the High Level Bridge. It is the highest streetcar crossing in the world and connects downtown Edmonton (Jasper Avenue and 109 Street) to Old Strathcona. Currently two streetcars are in operation - ex-Hankai Tramway Division''s 247 built in 1921, and a 1970 Siemens/DuWag prototype for Hannover, Germany unit 601.
