Piece of Albuquerque history uncovered by ART construction crews

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A piece of history was recently unearthed during Albuquerque Rapid Transit construction and will soon be headed for a museum.

Construction crews found tracks from the historic Albuquerque Trolley while ripping up parts of Central Avenue.

The trolley was originally horse drawn but later became electric and ran through the heart of Albuquerque. It ceased service in 1927.

The tracks are now headed to the Wheels Museum in Albuquerque.
