Operating in Brazil, the open cars had a much different appearance when built with open dashes.

A string of flatcars full of open cars made a very strange sight in 1965 as the open trolleys cars were delivered to the museums.

First operated in 1966, and still needing quite a bit of work, getting car #1875 operating was a major accomplishment for the volunteers at that time.

Accidents do happen and trolleys did derail occasionally, but overall had a very safe operating record. This is the only known photograph of Valley Railways #12 and unfortunately the car has derailed.

It remained here until it was discovered by a museum volunteer in 1985.

Trolley #61 was finally moved to the museum in 1991 and unloaded onto the track using a crane.
