Sheboygan Interurban Car 26
Car #26 of the Sheboygan Light, Power and Railway Co. is a unique surviving example of the peak of interurban travel in Wisconsin. The car was built for service between Sheboygan and Elkhart Lake serving Plymouth, Kohler, Crystal Lake, and Sheboygan Falls. In 1908 it was possible to ride on electric railroads from Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin, to mid-state New York. The line was abandoned in 1938 after which car #26 was used as a summer cottage until restoration began over 50 years later. Restoration was completed in 2005. Now it is possible to experience a ride on this wooden interurban car which originally ran in Wisconsin, now operating on the sole surviving segment of an original electric interurban line in Wisconsin. Interestingly, the East Troy line was opened in 1907 and the car was built and first ran in 1908.
