About this creation
This elongated 6 wide Peter witt Streetcar was first built in 2011 and based on the work of Brickshelf user J-2 and his vintage 2003 model of the Mister Rodgers' Neighborhood Trolley. (link to it here: www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=37552

I modified that users' model to have enclosed sides, reduced the width from 8 studs to 6 and have now extended the model to be a double truck model instead of my original two wheel version. This means the model has double the seats, plus I added shrouded wheels inspired by a table-scrap build from James Mathis from 2002, as seen here: www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=25115

More recently, I added center double doors for entry into the car, (the single doors at either end are for the passengers to pay the drier and exit the car) and changed the light bluish gray stripes to tan to more accurately represent the St. Louis Public Service Company colors, which ran the Peter Wit car's from 1927 to 1951.



As before, the model is supposed to feature printed number tiles on the board above the windscreens, such as the 32 shown.



The wheels are shrouded in panels (original idea by James Mathis) so they looks like a real streetcar, which would not have them exposed. This shrouding does not affect the car when turning, as seen above.



This trolley is also build-able in other colors, such as black instead of red.
