For a number of years, old surplus streetcars (trams) from Melbourne, Australia ran along a track along the Seattle waterfront. A few years ago, In order to build a new facility, the Seattle Art Museum had to demolish the maintenance barn for the waterfront streetcars so they were removed from service and placed in storage. Various plans to restore the service have failed, and now there are efforts to sell the vintage streetcars. I am in favor of rebuilding the tracks and resuming service after the demolition of the Alaskan Way Viaduct.
