Former Dallas Railway & Terminal PCC

Here is the former Dallas PCC owned by McKinney Avenue Transit Authority in Dallas TX.  This car was sold to the transit company in Boston MA. after the closing of the streetcar lines in Dallas.  That is the color scheme that the car is currently painted in.  It is currently stored at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union IL.

Update:  Now it is under restoration at the McKinney Avenue Transit car barn in Dallas TX. 2-19-17 update.

Update 2:  This car body has now been sold for scrap by the McKinney Ave. Transit Co. It was deemed to be to expensive to restore due to heavy rust on the underframe and body. The trucks will be rebuilt and used under the body of an Ex-Toronto PCC. 7-7-2017 update
