"New" Loop Trolleys Been Here the Whole Time
Loop Trolley organizers already have acquired two of the streetcars needed for the project. They're the ones that have been sitting in the Delmar Loop (above) and in front of the History Museum for the past several years.
Those trolleys were both purchased for $600,000. Hybrid electric/battery streetcars can cost three times the amount of renovated trolleys, according to the Post-Dispatch.
