A new streetcar was found, this one a steel body car from the Ottawa Car Company, part of a 20 car order in 1919. These cars served well until retirement in 1955. This farm originally had 2 Streetcars, the other one was removed a long time ago.

This car was originally number 700, but due to some accidents and superstition, was renamed to 740 in the 1930’s.
