Kenosha, Wisconsin PCCs—July 2016.

Earlier this week John Gruber and I visited Kenosha, Wisconsin to ride and photograph the vintage PCC streetcars that serve the town.

The cars are beautifully maintained; the line is short but interesting. Cars operated about every 15 minutes during the day. The fare is just $1.00—a true bargain.

On the downside, it is a bit difficult to figure out how and where to board the cars. A little bit of targeted advertising would go a long way.

During our short visit the weather was fantastic.

One thought on “Kenosha, Wisconsin PCCs—July 2016.”

  1. Lovely images. Kenosha is well worth a visit. I was there on a very cold day in 2004, but the sun obliged. I also had the privilege of being shown around the shops by the then Director of Transit, Len Brandrup. It was fascinating how they could make new parts to keep the old PCCs on the road. There were at that time plans to enlarge the system, but sadly, these seem to have been finally killed off as of 2015.
