    What happens to old San Diego trolley cars?  They go to Argentina

    The state of Mendoza in Argentina is buying four of the old trolleys for $1.2 million dollars.  Those trolleys have been in service more than 20 years and have logged more than 2 million miles. 

    Mendoza will use them on a new light rail system that starts up next year.  MTS is replacing the old trolley cars with those new, low-floor cars that have been used on the Green Line.
