Kenosha Wisconsin electric streetcar. January 2001.

A bitterly cold weekday afternoon, with temperatures holding at 5 above zero, finds us in downtown Kenosha Wisconsin. I was working back then as a Delivery Truck Driver, and had to stop on company business in nearby Pleasant Prairie Wisconsin. The skies were absolutely Crystal Clear, but there was a biting bitter windchill off of Lake Michigan that day. There was also evidence of a recent Heavy Snowstorm in town, as snow was dumped and piled up on many local Vacant lots. After I ate lunch...I went downtown briefly and photographed the red kenosha streetcar heading west into the late day sun. Was it worth it chasing the streetcar in all that bitter biting Wisconsin winter weather that day? You Bet!

Ah yes, the trolley to nowhere. Most of the Kenosha folks can't stand that thing. It was a waste of time and money and a bit of an annoyance. Maybe if it went somewhere, like up and down the shoreline from Pleasant Prairie to Carthage College.

Only the homeless people and a few tourist ride the trolley.
