50 was built by American Car & Foundry in 1931, #1203, for the newly formed IRR.  It was scrapped in 1941.

54 was built by American Car & Foundry in 1931, #1203.  It was scrapped in 1941.

55 was built by American Car & Foundry in 1931, #1203.  It was rebuilt as a full lounge with the seating from 62 and 63 which became straight coach.  It was sold to Lehigh Valley Transit as 1030 in 1941 and preserved by Seashore Trolley Museum in 1951. The young man in the white cap in the first picture of 55 is Howard Odinius, who is regarded as the "Father" of the Illinois Railway Museum.

60 was built by American Car & Foundry in 1931, #1203.  It was scrapped in 1941.

62 was built by American Car & Foundry in 1931, #1203.  It was scrapped in 1941.

65 was built by Pullman in 1931. The lounge section was replaced by a baggage section. 65 was sold to the Cedar Rapids & Iowa City as 120 in 1941. In 1954 it was purchased as the first car of the Illinois Railway Museum, which was known as the Illinois Electric Railway Museum at that time. I put in many enjoyable hours working on that car prior to 1960 when I moved to Peoria.

68 was built by Pullman in 1931.  It was scrapped in 1941.

74 was built by Pullman in 1931.  It was scrapped in 1941.

90 thru 99 were built by Cummings in 1930 as Northern Indiana Ry 350 thru 359. In 1935, they were returned to Cummings, who rebuilt them and sold them to the IRR. They were retired in 1940.

323 thru 326 were built by St. Louis Car in 1923 for Indiana Service Corp as 323 thru 326. They were made one man shortly after delivery and served as the prototype for later one manning of the heavier interurbans.

327 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1917 as Fort Wayne & Decatur RR 103. It was sold and rebuilt as ISC 327 in 1927 and became IRR as 327 in 1932. It was retired in 1937.
