"Purple Trolley" ...Purple Riverfront Trolley or Street Car, Memphis Tennessee, Fine Art Photography, Urban Street Scene, by Barbara Chichester.......The Memphis lines employ three types of streetcars. Two of the types are antiques, of two basic designs. Seven cars are four-wheel Brill streetcars, two built in the U.S. in 1912, the rest built later in Portugal to the same Brill design. The Brill cars have wooden bodies and 19 seats. The other seven antique cars (more are being restored) are larger (52 seats), slightly newer, have metal bodies and came from Melbourne, Australia. As elsewhere, the antique cars in Memphis have proven reliable in regular service. The third type consists of five replicars built in the past two years by Gomaco, using its double-trucked Birney design....The initial line began service in 1993. It was 2.5 miles long, mostly double-tracked. The streetcars served the Downtown pedestrian shopping mall, on Main Street, but also ran beyond it on both ends to serve areas that needed economic development. Outside the mall, the streetcars ran on the street, sharing a lane with automobile traffic. In 1997, the initial line was converted into a loop by adding a parallel line two blocks west of Main Street; the extension runs along the river and uses the right-of-way of an old railroad track. The addition brought the total system up to a length of five miles
