Time had thinned the rails and rotted the ties. The two 18-year passenger cars are going to remain, although they are being overhauled and repainted. These cars make an average of 225 trips a day and are one of ihe big lourist attractions of the capital, especially with youngsters. Rides are free to all who can crowd on.
