Tandy Center

After some technical difficulty, this month's JangooMag is online. Remember, you can also get it via email or Facebook inbox! Soon, we'll make it easier to get a free subscription.

Anyhow, I was waiting for a day like this to write about the Tandy Center Subway- the only privately-owned subway in the USA at this time- 1963-2002. The little subway connected the shopping center to the riverside parking lots. The ride was free, and, after the 1974 rehab, the trains looked so '70's, or, like a computer from then. Remember, Tandy was a computer company, and parent company of Radio Shack (tm). The subway sadly closed in 2002, as the site was redeveloped, and the trackage put to Fort Worth Transit use.

BTW- Tandy started out as a leather store in 1919. Then they went high tech.
