The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority (CRRMA) has released new photos of the historic streetcars which are being restored for the rigors of daily service by experts at Brookville Equipment Corporation in Brookville, Penn.

More than 1,900 miles from the street reconstruction, utility relocation, and rail welding of the El Paso Streetcar Project, the vintage vehicles which will roll again through Sun City streets are undergoing a transformation of their own.

In late 2015, six of El Paso’s classic Presidents’ Conference Committee (PCC) streetcars were taken to Brookville, Pennsylvania.  The company has over a decade of experience in restoring vintage streetcars for daily use — including PCC streetcars.

Brookville has restored cars for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency.
