Trolleys will return to the 10 tomorrow morning, after nearly 6 weeks of bus bridge service between 63-Malvern Loop and 33 St Station. The trolleys will operate out of Elmwood, as they had been before the bus bridge was put into effect with the June pick. The initial plan in June was to run the K-cars out of Callowhill on the 10 and a mix of K-cars and PCC-II cars on the 15. Neighbors along N 59 St objected to SEPTA's plans (though it appears that the short notice of the plans to run trolleys down 59 St also had something to do with it) and were backed by Philadelphia City Councilman Michael Nutter (D-4), who, by the way, just so happens to be considering replacing Emperor Street in the corner office at Broad and Market Sts in 2007.
