East Troy Railroad Open Car 21
Car 21 is a reproduction of an 1890's style open streetcar begun in 1975. It was moved to East Troy in 1985. The original streetcar wheels were replaced with standard railroad pattern wheels in 1993 to improve operation on our track. While mostly built from scratch, the brass work is cast fro original parts off a scrapped open car and the truck and controllers are from a Belgian streetcar. The car is a favorite in good weather and is affectionately called "Bucky" for its unique single-truck riding quality.
