PRR class 2D-F8 cast side-frame trucks of 50-ton capacity. In December, 1971, 846 of the origi-


nal 3,100 X29D cars were still in rev- enue service lettered for PRR. By De- cember, 1976, only 38 remained. X29D cars rebuilt from 1952 to January, 1954 initially received the PRR ball-keystone lettering scheme.

An ex- cellent color photo of an X29D with the shadow-keystone lettering is on the dust jacket cover of the book, PRR Col- or Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment Vol. 3, by Ian Fischer. When repainting cars from Septem-

CONNECTICUT COMPANY’S S T R E E T C A R S


Frederick A. Kramer with Ed Wadhams


Years have passed since yellow Connecticut Company trolleys criss- crossed the State of Connecticut with its roster of unusual wooden cars and assorted double truck open cars made famous for their trips to Yale football games packed with riders. Ownership in the Connecti- cut system lay in the New Haven Railroad. When the New Haven went bankrupt the trolley operation fell on hard times. Today the Con- necticut Company remains alive on the Branford Electric Railway Mu- seum as well as at the operating trolley museums at Warehouse Point and Kennebunkport.Now a comprehensive book on the Con- necticut Company’s Streetcars has been written by Frederick Kramer, with Ed Wadhams. In addition to a brief history, there are over 150 photos, maps and illustrations of the renowned system.
