Old Pueblo Trolley
Japan #869 in the lean-to
barn at Old Pueblo Trolley in Tucson, Arizona. This car operates
every weekend on OPT's line through the streets of Tucson. #869 was built
in 1953 by Aichi-Fuji for Kyoto City Lines. After a few years it
was renumbered #1869. In 1972 streetcar service in Kyoto ceased and
#1869 was sold to the Hankai Electric Tramway operating out of Osaka.
The car was renumbered Hankai #255 and operated there until 1992, when
it was retired and sold to Old Pueblo Trolley. It was restored in
1994 and 1995 and replaced Birney car #10, which was returned to owner
Orange EmpireRailway Museum, as OPT's main operating car.
