February 2004: A final step in the dismantling of Detroit's heritage trolley system was noted on February 3 and 4, 2003 when the trolley storage barn was demolished.

October 2003:  Detroit's heritage trolley system, which was the first to enter operation in 1976, may now, after many stops and starts, become the first to give up operation. Economic development never took hold along the area served by the line and only 3000 passengers per year were being carried by the trolley.  Click here for further details.
