The Trolley Rail Stairs are perhaps the most interesting of the lot. These stairs are built from the actual rails and concrete spacer slabs (that were between the rails) of the trolley rails that wound around Queen Anne and Seattle.

When the trolley lines were removed to make way for the bus and car traffic, a wise city engineer stockpiled the scraps and directed that they be repurposed for stair and retaining wall construction.

To this day Seattle still has a stockpile of old rails and concrete slabs.
