Streetcar 85 has been receiving quite a bit of media attention lately. The Historic Landmarks Commission is proud to be a part of restoring and bringing this piece of history back to Charlotte.

Streetcar 85 is featured in the Charlotte Observer article “What was it like when streetcars were ‘fundamental’ to Charlotte?” 


Lakewood Trolley has produced a short video documenting Streetcar 85’s return to Charlotte.
