Chicago Aurora & Elgin

Ex WB&A Cars

In 1937, the CA&E needed additional equipment. Much was available, but most of the cars suffered from extended lack of maintenance. Finally, 5 coaches were found on the Washington Baltimore & Annapolis which were just the ticket. 35 thru 39, built by Cincinnati Car in 1913, were purchased and remodeled for service as 600 thru 604. The ends were narrowed for service on the El. They had been motors, but came out as control trailers. Other modifications included drawbars, control, etc. A new paint scheme was devised. Blue and grey with red trim and tan roof was adopted from several selections. They entered service between July and October in 1937.

600 was built by Cincinati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 35.  It was sold as CA&E 600 in July 1937

601 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 36.  It was sold as CA&E 601 in August 1937.

602 was built by Cinatinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 37.  It was sold as CA&E 602 in August 1937 and burned in 1952.

603 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 38.  It was sold as CA&E 603 in September 1937.

604 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 39.  It was sold as CA&E 604 in October 1937.

The following year, three more cars were acquired. 80 thru 82 were combines built by Cincinnati in 1913. On the CA&E, they were rebuilt in much the same manner as the 600s. The baggage compartment was fitted with seats and the cars were operated as full coaches numbered 700 thru 702.

700 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 80.  It was sold as CA&E 700 in 1938.

701 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 81.  It was sold as CA&E 701 in 1938.

702 was built by Cincinnati Car Co in 1913 as WB&A 82.  It was sold as CA&E 702 in 1938.
