Additional Details:
Once a familiar sight in the City of Brotherly Love, this so-called ""Nearside"" car from Philadelphia is one of the trolleys of yesteryear preserved at the Seashore Trolley Museum at Kennebunkport, Maine. No. 6618 was built by J.G. Brill of Philadelphia in 1912. Because its trucks were designed for the city's track gauge of 5 ft. 2 1/4 in., they had to be rebuilt so the car could be operated on Seashore's standard (4 ft. 8 1/2 in.) gauge trackage.
