Sunday's Radio Edition: Winnipeg Streetcars !

Join Kerri and me this Sunday at 7:00 pm on 101.5 UMFM for West End Dumplings: The Radio Edition. This weekend's show is all about Winnipeg streetcars !

Our guests will be Brian Darragh who has just published The Streetcars of Winnipeg - Our Forgotten Heritage. Not only is he an historian, but also believed to be the last surviving City of Winnipeg streetcar operator. Also, Steven Stothers, the creator of the Winnipeg Streetcar.com website and part of the Winnipeg Streetcar 356 Restoration committee. We'll also ask him about what tours his Winnipeg Trolley Company will be offering for 2015.

Music by Choo Choo Bob, John Hartford and Stompin' Tom Connors. Also, be sure to check out this 1955 audio clip from CBC radio about the end of the line for Winnipeg's streetcars.
