This is more of a question than a topic of conversation, but I couldn't find a whole lot of information so I was wondering if anyone had any news regarding this topic. I know back after Hurricane Ike hit the trolleys were damaged (not the bus trolleys) and that they were undergoing restoration.

 

I had seen articles as recent as last year indicating they were close to coming back, but they weren't there when I traveled there in May of last year and haven't been back since. Does anyone know if they are operating again or is this one of those projects that is dragging along? Any word on when they may come back?

They might not be legal to just put on the main lines.  The metro LRV are standard gauge, but aren't up to DOT standards to be be on the mainline tracks

 

If the gauge matches, they could surely get permission to run them on the main lines to get them off the island for emergency purposes.  However, since the tracks are not connected at any place, they would have to transport the cars to the main lines in some way.  Once they have loaded them up to transfer them to the main lines, it seems it might be just as easy to keep them loaded and haul them off the island.
