Hey Bobby  OGage, I'm enjoying your posts...but your latest (Wyoming, Washington and Reading) is wrong.  The first photo, labeled "Wyoming PCC", is from El Paso, showing #1516 parked at the Cotton St. Barn of El Paso Electric.  These cars, originally from San Diego, spent most of their life in El Paso, working the International Line between El Paso and Juarez, Chih.  They ran there until about 1974.  After a long period of storage, they are presently in Pennsylvania, being rebuilt to run again in El Paso.  

Please keep posting, Bobby.  It's great to see what once was.

                                                                                                                                                   Regards,

                                                                                                                                                             Logan

Bobby, some misinformation there.  Your fourth photo is of Scranton Transit electromobile #505, currently under restoration at www.ectma.org  Your seventh photo is of a former Reading Transit & Light #511, I believe an Osgood Bradley built car, but the photo was taken in Skippack, Pa.  Car #511 has been at one of two locations in Skippack, both restaurants, since the 1980s.  

Please correct your post.

Plus the PCCs are in El Paso, Texas.

You guys are sharp. Both of you passed the test. I knew these cars were wrongly categorized after I posted them, but not before. Good catches guys! I updated my original post. The bottom line is that I have not been able to find pictures of any trolley cars that operated in Wyoming.

Note the early PCC, the Iron City Beer Sign and the Kaufmann's Department Store clock (the famous meeting place)!

And what could be more Pittsburgh-esque than this shot of a McKeesport-bound PCC streetcar passing under a Union Railroad Slag Dump Train? 

 

Thanks to Jim Holland for the photos.

Second image not found, but by the description I'd guess it was taken near Buttermilk Hollow Rd .

Hi Greg:

Yes, you are correct and I have now inserted the missing photo in my original post above.

These are trolleys that run / ran in Oregon.

Bobby:

Looks like another PCC car got identified with the wrong state!  The PCC car above is not from Oregon as no city in Oregon ever operated PCC cars.  I believe it is a San Francisco muni car.  Looks like it was ready for the scrap yard or a rebuild when this photo was taken.
