Part of a Future Loop

This scene returns to the intriguing trackwork along Canal St. that may some day see a new Desire Streetcar.  The proposed route would come inbound on N. Rampart St., one block ahead, and then utilize the gauntlet rails shown here on Canal St. until the next turn in its loop, near the camera at Basin St.  Switches will allow for movement to and from the outbound Canal Streetcar track.

It was at Rampart St. that once upon a time the four-track section of Canal St. began heading inbound toward the loop near the Mississippi River.
