The MATA Trolley is a heritage streetcar system operating in Memphis in the U.S. state of Tennessee. It has operated since April 29, 1993. As of 2008, the system consists of three lines: the Main Street Trolley, the Madison Avenue Loop and the Riverfront Loop. These lines are operated by the Memphis Area Transit Authority (MATA), and were put into operation over fifty years after Memphis' original streetcar network was dismantled in the 1940s. The trolleys used are almost all rehabilitated, vintage streetcars. The original three cars in operation on opening day were all formerly used in Porto, Portugal, and are Car 187, circa 1927; Car 194, circa 1935; and Car 204, circa 1940. These cars are each 30 feet 6 inches (9.3 m) long, 7 feet 10 inches (2.39 m) wide and weigh 25,820 pounds (11.7...

We took the riverfront loop on the trolly car in Memphis. This is a great way to see parts of the city in a historic street car.

We tried out the new Big River Crossing bridge over the Mississippi River from Memphis into Arkansas, which just opened this past Saturday. They restored an old unused car bridge built in the early 1900s for pedestrians, and it connects to riverfront trails in Memphis and Arkansas. I thought it was a unique view of the river that I had never been able to see before. It made me feel as if I was on vacation at a remote park or something. If you're ever in the area, I recommend trying it out and perhaps walking along the Memphis waterfront, seeing the old buildings, and trying out some of the quaint restaurants in the area. Thanks for watching! Also try my New Hampshire Appalachian Trail videos! https://youtu.be/W_Rq8XME-t0
When blues singer, Shemekia Copeland performs live, it's almost guaranteed to be an electrifying experience. In this session, recorded in KPLU's Seattle studios, we get a rare opportunity to hear Shemekia's voice in an intimate performance context. Instead of bringing her whole band, Shemekia arrived with just her guitar player, Arthur Neilson, as they perform "Never Going Back to Memphis."
