The car which would become Public Service Coordinated Transport (PSCT) #6 was originally ordered by the Twin City Rapid Transit Company of Minneapolis and St.
The new cars were part of a $20 million dollar modernization program at TCRT that would eventually include a fleet of 141 PCC cars. Public Service Coordinated Transport purchased the cars, including #325, for operation on the municipally owned 4.5 mile “City Subway” in Newark, NJ.
TCRT Car #325 became PSCT #6 and the entire fleet of 30 cars was placed in service between December 1953 and January 1954 on the City Subway, sending the last of PSCT’s conventional cars, all of which were over 30 years old, to the scrapyard.
The PCC cars received excellent maintenance in Newark and received very little modifications over the years. By the 1990s, the cars and the city subway itself was like a time machine, as the last entirely PCC car operation in North America.
A few days after retirement, Car #6 was briefly displayed in Hoboken, NJ before being placed in dead storage at the new City Subway (later renamed Newark Light Rail) maintenance facility in Bloomfield, NJ.
Several PCC cars formerly used on the Newark City Subway are preserved around the country, including #6. Car #6 presents an excellent educational experience to our visitors regarding the development of the electric trolley car.

Thanks for listening in on our several-part series of podcasts on the history of New York City public transportation. Part Three: Cable Cars, Trolleys and MonorailsElectrified trolley cars became the most common form of travel in New York starting in the 1890s and into the new century. Last night I stumbled across a documentary probably made in the late 80s, early 90s, on the history of the subway.

By the turn of the 19th Century most of the Appleby Farmers were sending milk to London via Snarestone Station.A  In addition goods facilities there provided means of transport for livestock, produce and grain, and coal in bulk was often purchased and delivered, farmers collecting their own supplies expressly for use by the threshing contractor when visiting their farms with the traction engine. Passenger services on the Joint Railway line had never really caught on and it was no surprise when these were discontinued on 12th April 1931.A  In the meantime the Road Traffic Acts and the interest financial and otherwise taken in the major bus Companies by the Railways paved the way for the easy replacement of those passenger trains by buses. In 1928 a daily service 713 from Appleby Magna to Burton on Trent was offered by the extension of the 712 service from Measham, this too was a wartime casualty ceasing on 6th January 1940.A  Three return journeys were offered daily. In addition, the express service X99 from Birmingham to Nottingham passed along the A453 trunk road and provided an hourly opportunity to travel to Measham, Ashby or Tamworth and beyond provided the intending passenger was prepared to walk from the village up Rectory or Measham Lanes.A  This service was started in 1928 and Barton also ran a similar service over the same route, which resulted in some racing and undesirable activities. By 1948 Appleby was well served by the Midland a€?Reda€? with four service 697 journeys each way to Ashby and Nuneaton on weekdays and Saturdays, and two on Sundays.A  It will be noted that there were at that time no late journeys, the 722 still providing the basic service to cope with the school requirements, it should be noted that Ashby Grammar Schools assembled on Saturday Mornings and dismissed at Wednesday lunchtimes to allow for sporting activities. A late Saturday journey to Appleby was introduced on the 722 in 1950 arriving at 1048 pm.


In 1955, service 670 from Leicester to Shackerstone via Ellistown Hotel was diverted at Swepstone covering one morning and one afternoon journey on Wednesdays and Saturdays to allow passengers from Appleby to reach the County Town.A A  This facility was withdrawn in 1970, the Wednesday bus having been curtailed at Heather by 1962.
Scholars attending Ibstock Secondary Modern School after opening in 1925 were initially drawn from the locality, but changes in the education system by 1933 meant that Appleby pupils had to be transported there by Contract Carriage.A  The buses were provided for many years by Blockleys of Heather who traded under the name of Ruby Coaches. Note the pantograph, affixed to pull power from the overhead catenary, installed in anticipation of the new LRV's to begin service on August 27, 2001.

Together the seven companies had 1,228 buses, which makes MTA Bus the eleventh largest bus fleet in the United States, serving 400,000 riders daily.

Louis Car Company completed the cars as order #1653 in December 1946 and the cars entered service in January 1947 on the “Interurban” line which connected Minneapolis and St.
Already, the concessionaire on the blue line has procured H5 and H6 subway cars from the Toronto Transit Commission (TTC), a public transit operator based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, (as their transit operator is acquring its new articulated six-car fixed Toronto Rocket subway cars to replace the older cars). This has stunted development along that corridor since people don't want to live and work in that area because of the traffic problems.Therefore, the Lagos State Government is expanding the road.
Julius Berger is expanding the road (so far they've expanded the road between Orile and Mile 2 and expanded the Mile 2 Bridge), while Chinese Civil Engineering and Construction Company (CCECC) is laying the tracks.
Some say that Molue is the corruption of a€?Maul Hima€?, a description given to the vehicle by the citya€™s elite who are piqued by the incessant manner the large bodied buses tear clothes and even flesh of passengers while either entering or disembarking as they reach their destinations. Others say No thanks to the recklessness of 'Danfo' buses (smaller commuter buses especially the Volkwagen types) conductors on the converted buses often admonished their drivers to 'Molue' (a corruption of the word remould) the smaller buses when they obstruct the larger ones.
From that moment on the term 'Molue' became associated with the big bully nature of the 911 model of commercial vehicles in urban Lagosa€?.What I heard from my dad was the 'maul e' version.
After filling all the seats, the spill over passengers were made to hang on a rail in what was usually called a€?standinga€™ in the buses. Whether you are dropping off the vehicle or boarding, you have to develop a running feet, as you practically jump off, or rush in, on motion. Itinerant merchants often make a kill inside Molue, hawking all manners of wares from the usual drugs to the cure-all herbs that take care of a thousand ailments.
I remember traveling once when one of these itinerant traders offered a powered which he claimed would win you the favour of anyone you approached after applying the powder to your face. No, I was too shocked to believe what had just happened to me.There was no point arguing or fighting with him. I remain optimistic but it is harder when you consider that there have been good initiatives in the times past that where not sustained. When bolekaja were banned, some transport operators replaced the wooden passenger cabins of their bolekaja with locally made metallic bus compartments. However, with time the Mercedes Benz 911 flatbed truck, which had been fitted with locally made passenger compartments became the preferred brand for molue operators.It is not clear what the origin of the term molue is. There, you might be unlucky to have your pocket picked by one of the extremely smart street urchins regarded as area boys, who deliberately crowded the two entrances, making ingress and egress a headache to passengers.


Passengers were so tightly packed that they made nonsense of Fela Anikulapo-Kutia€™s mimickery of their plight in the song, Suffering and Smiling.The air inside the Molue most times are stale, passengers have to cope with the body odours until fresh air permeates the vehicle. Most Molues dona€™t have windows and passengers have to sit on bare planks which are crudely welded to iron bars by local smithes. A ride inside Molue during the rain can spell disaster if a special outing is in view, as one may end up drenched.
WORD naptu2: Apart from the steering wheel, the dash boards of most Molues are often barren of any functioning gadgets, the drivers who are often boxed in with a wired mesh, could be found dripping with sweat as they battle with the steering wheel. With no view finder and side mirrors, the typical Molue driver relies on his mates, better known locally as bus conductors to marshal the roads, and these barks instructions to him intermittently.
This act which has become the archilles heels of many hapless commuters have somewhat become the defining mode of recognising who just migrated to Lagos and who is a resident.The Molue could be a market too. Many young pastors used the Molue as sound bites, from where they work on their confidence to handle microphone and address larger audience in the Church.
It is the brainchild of Michael Doppelmayr.The Doppelmayr Garaventa Group is an Austrian company that manufactures chairlifts, cable cars, gondolas, surface tows for ski and amusement parks as well as urban people movers and material handling systems. The Doppelmayr Garaventa Group was formed in 2002 when Doppelmayr of Wolfurt, Austria merged with Garaventa AG of Switzerland to form the world's largest ropeway manufacturer.Doppelmayr was founded in Wolfurt Austria in 1892.
In 1996, Doppelmayr's holding company purchased Von Roll, a Swiss maker of gondolas and cable cars. The merger of Doppelmayr and Garaventa was announced in 2001 and completed in 2002.The company was selected in April 2011 as one of a consortium to build London's Cable Car systemDCC Doppelmayr Cable Car is a supplier of Automated People Movers (APM) based in Wolfurt, Austria. He felt that the idea would definitely succeed because of the sheer population density of Lagos. He did his research and discovered that, by 2015, Lagos will be the third largest urban agglomeration in the world, with a population of about 25 million people.He made contact with some Nigerian businessmen and Ropeways Transport Limited was formed. The chief executive officer of Ropeways Transport Limited is Captain Dapo Olumide, former CEO of Virgin Nigeria.Ropeways Limited proposed 3 routes to Lamata. This was officially formalised via a tripartite agreement between Ropeways Limited, LAMATA and the Lagos State Government.The idea behind the selection of these routes is to decongest the three bridges connecting Lagos Island to the Mainland (Carter, Eko and Third Mainland bridges), decongest the two bridges connecting Lagos Island to Victoria Island (Onikan and Five Cowry bridges) and connect the port and industrial district (Apapa) with the central business district (Marina). A journey from Apapa to Adeniji will take roughly 4 minutes.The project will be funded by a loan from the African Development Bank (ADB). The project will cost $500 million and it is expected that fares will be around 100 a€“ 300 naira.
The project will have 5 sources of power viz a€“ (1) The Independent Power Project (IPP) on the Island (2) Gas (3) Diesel (4) Turbines (5) Inverters (which will provide 30 minutes back-up power).
