Product Description

In June 1948 the Illinois Terminal Railroad System placed the order with St.Louis Car Co. for eight multiple-unit PCC cars for use between St.Louis and Granite City, Illinois. The double-end PCCs (the smallest PCC fleet in North America) arrived in 1949. Because of the very rapid decline in ridership during the 1950s, these cars remained in service until June 1958 when the last Illinois Terminal PCC pulled out of the basement terminal on 12th Blvd. in St.Louis.
