Some McCoy Pacific Electrics

People on the Eastern Seaboard tend to think that the Trolley originated in New York City or Boston. While they were used for quite some time in both cities, plenty of great cities on the other side of our great country used them as well.

Here's a neat and rare representation of some streetcars from Bob McCoy. I would imagine they are rare as well. These are the only two I have seen.

whoa.... not so fast..... These ARE rare birds, but not McCoy. These were made by a fellow named George Templin. I have an old add promoting these trolleys. I don't recall how much they went for, but I believe he only made 25 of these and they're all individually numbered. I think they were produced around 1974.
