√ The motorman throwing a switch for Lehigh Valley Transit Car 1007 seen here at Allentown, Pennsylvania, in February of 1950. Car 1007 was purchased secondhand from the Cincinnati and Lake Erie in 1938, and it was retired from service on November 14, 1951.

Omaha and Council Bluffs Car 1019, built by the J.G. Brill Company in 1917, is on the single-track wye at 45th and Bedford, Omaha, Nebraska on February 22, 1955. Streetcar service was discontinued later that year.

Chicago Transit Authority Car 1725 has turned south from Cermak Road, crossing under the C.B. & Q. underpass at Trumbull Avenue, Chicago, Illinois on June 11, 1951.

√ The Milwaukee Electric Railway and Light Company Car 1142 has stopped to pick up a passenger in downtown Waukesha, Wisconsin in September 1949. Car 1142 was built by the St. Louis Car Company in 1927, a 48-seat, all-steel car. In 1949 it was sold to Speedrail and was removed from the TMER&L roster.

Twin Cities Rapid Transit PCC Car 436 is on Hennepin at Lyndale, Minneapolis, Minnesota on June 12, 1953. This must have been a prosperous operation at this time. Note that there is someone in every seat.

Fort Collins Municipal Railway Birney 20 is in service at Fort Collins, Colorado on June 23, 1951. This line opened in December of 1907 and operated with Birney Cars (six of them) until 1951, when poor ridership discouraged further operation. In 1977, however, Car 21 was rebuilt and made operational. The City of Fort Collins allowed replacement of a mile and a half of track, all done with private funding. The line operates with Cars 21 and 25 on some weekends and for special events.

Denver and Intermountain Car .03 is coming out of the Tramway Loop in downtown Denver, CO on July 2, 1950. The Denver and Intermountain used a decimal point in the numbering of their cars.

Southern Iowa Freight Motor 100 is stopped at the Moravia, Iowa depot on August 22, 1954. This freight-only short line would limp along for much longer than expected, with the last train operating on July 18, 1967, after which all operations ceased.

District of Columbia Transit PCC Car 1570 Is passing 15th and H Streets NW, Washington, D.C. on September 6, 1958.

Fort Dodge, Des Moines and Southern Combine 74, built in 1913, is at Des Moines, Iowa, this road’s southern terminal on November 1, 1953. The Fort Dodge and Des Moines line was 86 miles long, with Boone, Iowa about in the middle. It was noted for its 2,179-long, 182-foot-high bridge crossing the Des Moines River. Regularly scheduled interurban service was terminated on August 31, 1955.
