Kenosha Transit Lines

On June 17, 2000, Kenosha, WI, became a trolley city again. KTL established a 1.9 mile loop from the Metra station to the lakefront. This will provide convenient transportation between condominiums under construction and commuter trains to the heart of Chicago.

2185 was built by St Louis Car in July 1948, Order #1666, as Philadelphia Transportation Co 2185. It was rebuilt in May 1984 and sold to the East Troy Electric Ry in November 1994.  It was donated to KTL as 2185 in October 2011.

4606 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1950, #1674, and completed by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1951, #1912, as Toronto Transit Commission 4528, Class A8. It was rebuilt in 1990 as 4606, Class A15. It was retired and sold to KTL where it kept the same number but was repainted in a Chicago Surface Lines scheme.

4609 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1950, #1674, and completed by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1951, #1912, as TTC 4526, Class A8. It was rebuilt in 1990 as 4609, Class A15. It was retired and sold to KTL where it kept the same number but was repainted in a Pittsburgh Railways scheme.

4615 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1950, #1674, and completed by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1951, #1912, as TTC 4518, Class A8.  It was rebuilt in 1991 as 4615, Class A15.  It was sold to Vintage Electric Streetcar Co in 1996 and sold to KTL as 4615.  It was painted in a Johnstown Traction scheme.

4616 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1950, #1674, and completed by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1951, #1912, as TTC 4515, Class A8.  It was rebuilt in 1991 as 4616, Class A15.  It was sold to Vintage Electric Streetcar Co in 1996 and sold to KTL as 4616.  It was painted in a Cincinnati Street Ry scheme.

4617 was built by St Louis Car Co in 1950, #1674, and completed by Canadian Car & Foundry in 1951, #1912, as TTC 4539, Class A8.  It was rebuilt in 1992 as 4617, Class A15, and retired in 1996.  It was sold as ETER 4617 in 1996 and donated as KTL 4617 in October 2011.

The only piece of non-revenue equipment is a Unimog which performs all utility duties including snow plowing.

On July 22nd, Paul Weyrich gathered a group of traction aficionados for a morning of riding, which was followed by a lunch honoring Joseph McCarthy, the general manager. It was his vision which created this new concept in community development thru the use of electric traction. It was sad to learn that a month later, Joe went to his eternal reward at the age of 48. Here are photos of the ride during which rain threatened between the sunshine.
