Fon du Lac
Fon du Lac & Oshkosh Electric Railway
#102 in a St. Louis Car Co. builders photo.  There are few photos of these cars, and the FdL & O.E.Ry name was only carried for 9 months, at which point the line was merged with the FdL city car line to form the Eastern Wisconsin Railway & Light Co. (they both had the same parent.) Again, cars arrived right before the start of service, so I'd guess this picture is from mid January, 1903. City directories from the period advertise:"Take the Yellow Cars to Oshkosh." Opening day newspaper accounts also refer to the cars as yellow with black trimmings. A true departure from the dark green, so typical of the period.
