Future Projects - Saskatoon 35
This 1895 Brill manufactured streetcar was originally built as an open summer car for the Street Railway in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 1920 four of these cars were purchased second hand by the Saskatoon Municipal Railway, where they re-entered service numbered 32 - 35 and nick-named "Carolina Cars". With the exception of Saskatoon 33, which was rebuilt as a works car, they did not last very long and were retired as early as 1934. The body of Saskatoon 35 was rescued in 1999 from a farm in Cut Knife, Saskatchewan. A fitting Peckham Truck has been obtained from Zurich, Switzerland.
