Gallery 710: Trams Around the World - The Rockhill Trolley Museum October 2017

Bearing a strong similarity to 273 which can be seen at Crich, Oporto 249 was in effect the prototype of that car, being built in late 1904 as the first double truck trolley car to operate in Oporto. Remaining in service in Portugal until 1972 249 was acquired by Rockhill in October 1972 and arrived in the US in operable condition. We see it in Car Barn 1.
