      Brings memories of summer days at Glen Echo pool, and riding the Cabin John trolly there. The trolly rand on rail road tracks through the woods, and would rock will rolling at a good clip.

      Was the trolley at Glen Echo? I remember a miniature train at Cabin John Park. Also an F-86 that you could crawl through and over. Those were the days!

      @Jonathan: When D.C. had electric trolly cars in the transit system, the Cabin John line ran from Georgetown to Glen Echo and then on to Cabin John. Indeed, I recall seeing the tracks on O Street in Georgetown “fairly recently”, and the car barn, a stone edifice, is still on M Street near Key Bridge.

      Ah, the real trolley. Thanks for the explanation. I recall the tracks and have passed the Car Barn many times.
