Tucson streetcar
Author: wpamtk

Labor Day weekend found me in Tucson, Arizona, where I had the opportunity to ride the streetcar system, known as "Sun Link." It's about 4 miles long (much shorter than Phoenix's light rail) and zigzags through downtown and out to the University of Arizona campus. I'm happy to say the cars' air-conditioning works very well.

Anyone know why did they not use a messenger wire on the system?

No mesesenger wire because the spans are not that long between poles.
