On Sunday morning I was walking down to catch the El at Chicago & State to get to the Second Life convention and saw this bit of construction happening in the middle of the street ...

They were pulling out the old Trolley tracks and had them laid out like this. I know that these keep eroding up through the blacktop, so are constantly creating a problem in the streets, but it's sort of sad to see them ripped up. I remember when I was a kid all the buses that ran off of the over-head cables ... especially the web of lines that came in at places like North & Clark.
