Very cool. Here in Brooklyn, there's actually a pretty surprising amount of leftover trolley tracks that can be seen poking out of asphalt and cobblestones in some of the less busy parts of town. There are some great examples of this in DUMBO and Red Hook, to such an extent that I've recently spent around 30 hours designing an entire trolley system for Brooklyn:

NOTE: That's a simplified screenshot of it. There are a lot of details that I have spared you all.  :)
