    Love your map of DC’s old streetcar lines. Where did you find it?

    Not sure if this exact map is there but there are some like it in “100 Years of Capital Traction”

    Interesting to see that Metrobus still uses some of the old streetcar route numbers for the same or similar routes (like the 30s, 50s, etc.).
