Case Study: New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA) Replicar

BROOKVILLE partnered with the New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA) to develop a modern replica streetcar that embodies the 1920s Perley A. Thomas replicas that once traversed the city's historic streetcar corridor. BROOKVILLE supplied the replica streetcars with modern streetcar trucks, propulsion, and electrical systems which integrated into the replica car shells produced in-house by NORTA.

Since 2002, BROOKVILLE has made contributions to 31 NORTA Perley A. Thomas replica streetcars currently in service in New Orleans today.

Case Study: Replica California Red Car
