A Streetcar Named Retired
Not far off Bayou Chico, just west of Pensacola, there's a weathered old streetcar that's been pressed into use as a storage shed.
The paint is long gone, so it's rather difficult to be sure of its origin. But it's parked not far from where the old Bayshore Trolley used to run, the line connecting Pensacola with Warrington. I believe it used to extend as far as the Naval Air Station, and seems to have been built on top of the old military road.
The tracks are gone these days, with only a half-buried siding betraying they were ever there. The railbed is now Bayshore drive.
