Historic streetcar back on River Street

By Don Logana - bio | email

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -  The historic 1930s streetcar is right on time with regular runs on River Street starting today.

She actually debuted back in December, but a few traffic and driver training details needed attention.

92-year-old Theodore Page's father was the last man to drive this same streetcar before it was retired in 1946 after a ceremony on the Isle of Hope.

"It feels great. You return to something in history which was once written about including my father. That was a long time ago," Page said.

The historic streetcar makes seven stops along River Street Wednesday through Saturday,  between noon and 7pm and it's free.
