Just found this link  Duplicate Slide: L&WV Laurel Line Freight Motor Trolley -- Antique      

 have to copy and paste it  its shows a trolley pulling a freight car..

Parts of a passenger trolley that had seen better days rebuilt into a freight motor by the shop.  Not an uncommon action to take older pass equipment and rebuild into something else to do a MoW job or be a freight motor or some sort.  Take a look at some of the W&OD equipment - freight motors built out of box cars and some funky shop built motors, too.  One of the fun bits of traction modeling - there was a lot of creativity in play re-purposing whatever was on hand to make whatever was needed
