Oklahoma - El Reno Heritage Express Trolley

El Reno, OK - Heritage Express Trolley (Unofficial Page) The city of El Reno (population about 15,000, about 30 miles west of Oklahoma City) inaugurated its Heritage Express Trolley in August 2001, as a tool for promoting tourism. A single-track route of about 0.9 mile (1.5 km) connects the Canadian County Historical Museum, at the former Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad station, with the downtown shopping area along Bickford Avenue. This is not an electric operation, but instead uses propane gas for power.

Service is provided by a single double-ended car which was originally built by J. G. Brill in 1924. It started as car #60 of the Philadelphia & Western Railway, an electric interurban line which survives today as the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority’s route 100 (the Norristown High Speed Line). It was the first of a group of eleven cars known among railfans as Strafford cars because they saw extensive use on the P&W’s branch to Strafford.
