||LVT Private Car 812
||Image is a composite of two frames. Car #812, a 1914 800 series interurban, stops on its way to Allentown on the Philadelphia Division of the Lehigh Valley Transit Line as long-time LVT motorman Charlie Hauser (and famous LV NRHS member) stands near. This heavyweight was built as the copmany president's prviate car (#999) on the chassis of a wrecked 1901 high speed St. Louis deck roof car. It was converted to a passenger car in 1921 and re# 812, next to the 800 series Jewett interurbans (all of which were later turned into box motors or scrapped, while 812 survived until the end of service in 1951).
