TROLLEY FANS will be interested in this Brill trolley of the semi-convertible type. It featured specially designed sash which could easily be pushed upward, into a recess provided under the roof, as the drawings clearly show. Some of our more enthusiastic builders may like to detail these windows, and in any event we have here provided plenty of other features and pictures of these fine trolleys, for those who are about to add to their "rolling stock."
At the turn of the century these Brill cars were considered the most highly developed type of their class for city, suburban and interurban service. The two large photos of the cars show respectively the City and the Suburban types of the semi-convertible car. The cars had Detroit platforms, with folding doors at one side. The sashes in the vestibules were arranged to drop into pockets. Curved glass windows at platform entrances enabled conductors to watch from any point in the car passengers entering or leaving.
The length of the car body was 30 feet 8 inches Length over vestibules 41 feet 8 inches. The data and pictures here reproduced are by courtesy of the J. G. Brill Co.
The grooveless post semi-convertible window system is applicable to cars with both longitudinal and transverse seating plans, and is suited to both curved and straight-sided construction, conforming readily to the arched' top twin-window arrangement, widely used in interurban car styling.
