1912 San Jose Trolley (#124)

ImageCar 124 was built by the American Car Company in St. Louis, Missouri for the San Jose Railroad.  It ran in San Jose from 1912 to 1934 when it was sold with Car 73 for use as housing.  In 1920, its original red paint scheme changed to yellow and the windows were added to the open sections.  Car 124 was restored and returned to service on November 18, 1988.
