PRODUCT DETAILS

These small, light, steel streetcars were designed for one man operation, which made them a boon to labor strapped cities during World War I and economical to operate during the Great Depression. Originally called “Safety Cars” to emphasize that they were safe to ride, even without a conductor, they are better known as “Birneys” after their co-designer, Charles O. Birney.

Features include:

  • DCC-equipped for speed, direction, and lighting
  • Designed for aftermarket sound system installation
  • Dual-mode NMRA-compliant decoder with 8-pin plug
  • Two-position switch (underside of car) for choice of overhead wire or track pickup
  • Precision can motor
  • Finescale gearing for slow-speed operation
  • Working trolley poles
  • All-wheel drive
  • Detailed painted interior
  • LED lighting

    This model performs best on 15" radius curves or greater.
