On a hazy, humid July 31st in 1928, a lone trolley made the last trip across the familiar rolling landscape, passing the increasingly newer buildings, seemingly smaller fields, and ever receding forests without fanfare. The St. Louis interurban cars were scrapped and taken to Edinboro to be converted into diners. Originally numbered MCL Nos. 14 – 18, after the reorganization into Northwest Pennsylvania Railway Company, the cars were renumber as NWP 400 – 404. Cars 400, 401, and 402 (previously 14, 15, and 16) were destroyed in the fire, cars 403 and 404 (17 and 18) were kept in service until they were scrapped in 1928.
Car #404 is a 45′ 7″ Coach Trolley scrapped in 1928. It became a diner, then a bar, then over the years several different bars. For a while was even a tattoo parlor. Now, it’s an Antique store! The bones of the Trolley are still here and incorporated in the building. Much of the roof line is intact with lighted stained glass windows casting a glow over the interior. Inside you’ll find an eclectic mix of Antiques and Collectibles. We make an effort to find and resurrect local historical pieces to offer for sale. You need to stop by! This is like walking into your grandmothers house. Oldies playing in the background, and an inventory that is constantly changing. We love having people drop in just to see the place and admire the history of the structure. Inside you’ll find treasurers that we’re sure you haven’t seen in a while.
