In Service - Minneapolis, MN (Twin Cities Rapid Transit)

BHRA has 12 ex-Shaker Heights/ex-Twin Cities Rapid Transit cars. The TCRT numbers for these cars are: 340-344 (SHRT 51-55), 349-351(SHRT 60-62) and 356-359 (SHRT 67-70). These cars were manufactured by St. Louis Car Co. PCCs from 1947. They entered service in 1947 and ran up until Twin Cities abandoned their streetcar network in the early 1950s. Since TCRT's PCC cars were only half a decade old, few of these cars were scrapped, most were sold to other rapid transit systems (including Newark, Cleveland and Mexico City). In 1953 these cars were sold to Shaker Heights Rapid Transit and ran on that line until they were retired and replaced by LRVs in the 1980s.
