Restoring "America's First Streetcar"
BROOKVILLE is experienced in restoring various styles and types of the vintage trolley. "America's First Streetcar" named for being the first publically purchased streetcar for a major city was originally manufactured in 1912. BROOKVILLE had the opportunity to work with San Francisco Municipal Railway in completing its almost 100 year rebuild.
The streetcar constructed of wood and steel was completely restored back to original condition. Included in the historical restoration was the complete rebuild of the trucks, motors, and running gear as well as reconstruction of the carbody and wood roof with canvas covering.
Many prints and drawings do not exist on heritage streetcars and BROOKVILLE's in house engineering and design team offers the capability to complete the work even without some of these documents.
