Since nobody makes a 3-rail Neighborhood Trolley, here's my take!
Since I'm impoverished, I had to make do with materials on hand, in this case a toy San Francisco cable car mounted to an MTH bump and go chassis by Bill Ondeko of Springfield, MO:
The trolley dismantled:
I decided to leave the old signs in place, as it would be too messy to remove 'em...
Off to the paintbooth for primer!
Workbench view of the painted shell and seats.
And, of course, it wouldn't be a build without Shop Superintendent Norma Bates Kitteh...
Having approved the project, she graciously sat to be scritched.
Fortescue J. Gi-raffe and his flamingo friend were hanging out next to the soldering iron station.
I made up some stickers and attached them...
And the finished project!
A couple of happy snaps on the test track...
And a couple of rather blurry cellphone pics of the Neighborhood Trolley at the JRM museum layout!
If you have a cable car which you wish to convert, the labels are in the attachments in PNG and PDF format!
