Tracks Around 39th Street

There used to be a huge streetcar depot around 39th Street. It’s all mostly demolished now, but tracks still survive.

Also, due to the advanced state of dilapidation and my ignorance of the difference between railroad and streetcar trackage, there might be different types in this area.

It is sad to think that there was once such a highly advanced mass transit system in St. Louis–which will never come back at the rate we’re going.
