trolley car tracks, Boulder, Colorado

For many months now Broadway in front of the office has been torn up with new construction - the concrete paving of the street from Pine to Iris.  As demolition first started, the old trolley car steel rails that used to run down Broadway were revealed.   A vestige of our past, more sensible, public transportation system, the rails were quickly cut and hauled away, probably to be smelted back down into more Escalades. However, a spur of the tracks was preserved, I assume by the City, as it cuts across the sidewalk (and out of the way of the paving) in front of buildings along the west side of the street between North and Alpine.
