Iowa - Midwest Electric Railway

Mount Pleasant, IA - Midwest Electric Railway has several street cars that operate on the Midwest Old Threshers Reunion grounds. Among these are two open air cars No.1779 and 1718 which were built in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1911. They operated in that city until 1965 when they became part of a group of cars that came to the US. The design of these cars is called a Narragansett style after a type developed by the Brill Company of Philadelphia. The interior woodwork is constructed of a Brazilian hardwood called Peroba de Camp. The cars joined the Old Threshers collection in 1970 and 1973.
