1949 Red Arrow Double-End PCC Interurban

Delivered in 1949 to the Red Arrow Lines for their services out of 69th St. Terminal, these St. Louis Car Co-built vehicles were actually not PCCs, though they did make use of some PCC patents. They can be called quasi-PCCs, though 'interurban' is a more correct term to describe them. They were used on all the interurban trolley routes out of Upper Darby PA, including the West Chester line and the Ardmore line. They were retired in 1982 when new LRVs arrived.

This model is available again both as a resin/3D-printed hybrid kit, and as a powered undecorated factory-assembled Ready-To-Finish (RTF) model. 3D printed parts for the kit version will be available separately from our Shapeways shop.
