Douglas County Street Railway
The line was reorganized as the Superior Rapid Transit Railway Co. in 1892, and it was finally absorbed into the Duluth Street Railway in August, 1900. Douglas County Street Railway #105 is Pullman Lot 665, 1 closed electric street car to plan 428-E, Green and white exterior, ash interior, ordered 22 March 1890 and shipped 5 July 1890. The photo is a builder's shot at the Pullman plant. The car had motors and controls removed at an early date, and was used as a trailer for a number of years before being sold to St. Cloud MN in 1903.  It ran on that property for some time and may have lasted until WWI.
