Streetcars in New Orleans , Louisiana have been an integral part of the city's public transportation network since the first half of the 19th century. The longest of New Orleans' streetcar lines, the St. Charles Avenue line , is the oldest continuously operating street railway system in the world.
There are currently five operating streetcar lines in New Orleans: Claude Line which are operated as one through-routed line.
Charles Avenue Line is the only line that has operated continuously throughout New Orleans' streetcar history though service was interrupted after Hurricane Katrina in August and resumed only in part in December , as noted below. All other lines were replaced by bus service in the period from the late s to the early s. Preservationists were unable to save the streetcars on Canal Street, but were able to convince the city government to protect the St. Charles Avenue Line by granting it historic landmark status.
In the later 20th century, trends began to favor rail transit again. A short Riverfront Line started service in , and service returned to Canal Street in , 40 years after it had been shut down. The wide destruction wrought on the city by Hurricane Katrina and subsequent floods from the levee breaches in August knocked all the streetcar lines out of operation and damaged many of the streetcars. Service on a portion of the Canal Street line was restored in December of that year, with the remainder of the line and the Riverfront line returning to service in early Charles Avenue the "Riverbend".
These first trains, however, were pulled by horses because the engines had not yet arrived from England. The PRR received its first working steam engine the next year, and first put it into service on September 27, Service continued in a mixed fashion, running sometimes with locomotives, and at other times with horse traction.
A round trip fare at that time was seventy-five cents. Those first operations included inter-city and suburban railroad lines, and horse-drawn or mule-drawn omnibus lines. An omnibus is essentially a smaller form of a stagecoach.
The first lines of city rail service were created by the New Orleans and Carrollton Railroad, which in opened three lines. In the first week of January, the company opened its Poydras-Magazine horse-drawn line on its namesake streets Poydras Street and Magazine Street , the first true street railway line in the city.
New York City was the only place to precede New Orleans with street railway service. Then a horse-drawn line to the suburb of Lafayette, which was centered on Jackson Avenue, opened on January In September, the New Orleans and Carrollton started operating its third line, a steam-powered line along present-day St.
Charles Avenue, then called Nayades, connecting the city with the suburb of Carrollton, and terminating near the present-day intersection of St.
Charles Avenue and Carrollton Avenue. That line ended in the s, but the Lafayette and Carrollton lines continued, eventually becoming the Jackson and St. As the area upriver uptown from the city began to be built up—much of the new development along the Nayades St.
Charles Avenue corridor—additional lines were created by the New Orleans and Carrollton. On February 4, , branch lines were opened on Louisiana and Napoleon Avenues. Like the Jackson line, these were horse- or mule-drawn cars, operating from Nayades Avenue to the river along their namesake streets.
The Napoleon line continued into the next century. Up until about , omnibus lines provided the only public transit outside the area serviced by the New Orleans and Carrollton RR. The need was felt for a true citywide street railway service. Despite the beginnings of war, the company opened and continued service on its new lines. A few other efforts were attempted during the Civil War, but progress resumed soon after the war's end.
In , several additional street railway companies made their appearance in New Orleans. The first was the Magazine Street Railroad Co. Charles Street Railroad Co. The horsecar lines of these companies covered different parts of the city, overlapping in some areas.
The City RR even operated a steam railroad to Lake Ponchartrain, the West End line, which eventually became part of the city streetcar system. In the late s, these were the streetcar companies and the lines they operated: A number of experiments were tried out over the next few decades in an attempt to find a better method than horses or mules for propulsion of streetcars.
These included an overhead cable car system an underground cable, such as was eventually developed in San Francisco, was impossible because of the high water table under New Orleans ; a walking beam system; peneumatic propulsion; an ammonia locomotive; a "Thermo-specific" system using super-heated water; and the Lamm Fireless engine.
That line gradually gave up steam locomotives because of the objections of residents along the line to the smoke, soot, and noise. The area between the town of Carrollton and the City of New Orleans was sparsely populated with large swaths of agricultural land when the line was laid out in the s; by the latter 19th century it was almost completely urbanized. Carrollton was annexed to New Orleans in Due to this increased urbanization, horsecars were used on the entire line.
Electrical propulsion of streetcars finally won out over all the other experimental methods. Electric powered streetcars made their first appearance in New Orleans on the Carrollton line on February 1, The line was also extended out Carrollton Avenue and renamed St.
Other companies followed suit. Over the next few years, almost all the streetcar lines of all six companies were electrified, including the West End steam line; the few lines that remained animal powered, such as the Girod and Poydras, were discontinued.
Then in , New Orleans Railways Co. Labor problems began to occupy the attention of street railway officials as consolidation progressed. At first, each of the street railway companies had its own agreement with its operating personnel.
New Orleans Railways tried to maintain those separate agreements, but labor representatives insisted on one agreement for the entire company.
They also demanded an increase in pay and recognition of their union, Division of the Amalgamated Association of Street and Electric Railway Employees of America. The union struck on September 27, After about two weeks of strife, a settlement was reached, and in early , the company signed a contract and recognized the union. In , there were protests when the Louisiana legislature mandated that public transportation must enforce racial segregation.
At first this was objected to by both white and black riders as an inconvenience, and by the streetcar companies on grounds of both added expense and the difficulties of determining the racial background of some New Orleanians. Consolidation of operations under a single company had the advantage of untangling and rationalizing some streetcar lines.
As an extreme example, consider the Coliseum line, which had the nickname Snake Line, because it wandered all over uptown New Orleans.
Its early name Canal and Coliseum and Upper Magazine gives an idea of the route. Under consolidation, Coliseum was pretty much limited to service on its namesake street, with trackage on upper Magazine Street turned over to the Magazine line, as one might expect.
Other efficiencies were instituted, such as reducing the number of streetcar lines operating over long stretches of Canal Street. There was another strike beginning July 1, This one was settled around the end of July with a new contract. In the early s, several extensions and rearrangements of service resulted in the inauguration of the famous Desire line, the Freret line, the Gentilly line, and the St. In , there was a widespread strike by transit workers demanding better pay, which was widely supported by much of the public.
Sandwiches on baguettes were given to the "poor boys" on strike, said to be the origin of the local name of " po' boy " sandwiches. There was much rioting and animosity. Several streetcars were burned, and several people were killed. Service was gradually restored, with the strike ending in October.
Buses began to be used in New Orleans transit in Several streetcar lines were converted to bus over the next 15 years.
The last four streetcar lines in New Orleans were the S. Claiborne and Napoleon lines, which were converted to motor bus in ; the Canal, which was converted in ; and the St. Charles, which has continued in operation, and now has historic landmark status. Racial segregation on streetcars and buses in New Orleans was finally ended peacefully in Until then, signs separating the races were carried on the backs of the seats in streetcars and buses.
These signs could be moved forward or back in the vehicle as passenger loads changed during the operating day. Under court order, the signs were simply removed, and passengers were allowed to sit wherever they pleased. In , the Amalgamated won a representation election and formed Local Division in New Orleans. In the late s and early s, it became apparent that private operation of the New Orleans transit system could not continue.
Creation of a public body that could receive tax money and qualify for federal funding was necessary. In , a new Riverfront line was created, using private right of way along the river levee. This was the first new streetcar line in New Orleans since Then in , the Canal line was restored to rail operation.
The area through which the St. Charles Avenue Line traveled fared comparatively well in Hurricane Katrina 's devastating impact on New Orleans at the end of August , with moderate flooding only of the two ends of the line at Claiborne Avenue and at Canal Street.
However, wind damage and falling trees took out many sections of trolley wire along St. Charles Avenue, and vehicles parked on the neutral ground traffic medians over the inactive tracks degraded parts of the right-of-way. At the start of October , as this part of town started being repopulated, bus service began running on the St. RTA restored streetcar service on the rest of St. Service along the remainder of the line on Carrollton Ave. Leaving the line shut down and the electrical system unpowered allowed the upgrades to be performed more safely and easily.
