ROCKY MOUNTAIN RAILROAD CLUB

Railroad Equipment: Los Angeles Railway PCC Streetcar 3101

railway car This car was built in 1943 for the Los Angeles Railway and after it was retired from that line it was moved to Cripple Creek, CO. It ran there for a short time on a tourist operation with about 900 feet of track.

The car was then moved to the Colorado Railroad Museum where it resided until being leased to the Pike's Peak Historical Street Railway Foundation who will restore it to operation. The Pikes Peak Historical Street Railway Foundation purchased the car from the club in July of 2006.

The car was built to the same gauge (3' 6") as Denver Tramway but the Tramway never operated any PCCs. An offer was made by the St. Louis Car Company to "loan" Denver a PCC for testing but the Tramway company refused.
