Have you ever wondered about those train tracks in the middle of East Street? When were they last used? My sons and I remember driving to grade school and as we traveled south on East Street there would be a line of parked cars on our right and a moving train in the middle of the street on our left. This happened regularly and well into the 1990’s.
And notice that I said we were traveling on East Street? Back then East Street stopped at Patrick to the south. There was only East Street, no North East Street and no South East Street.
And that is the end of today’s history lesson…
