San Diego Trolley to restore two vintage cars

This week, two Presidential Conference Committee (PCC) vintage trolley cars arrived in San Diego from Lake Tahoe, Nev. By 2008, San Diego Trolley Inc. plans to finish restoring and begin operating the cars on its downtown loop.

Earlier this year, the Metropolitan Transit System approved a plan to create a non-profit subsidiary to acquire the trolleys, which are similar to the PCC cars that operated in San Diego between 1936 and 1949.

San Diego Vintage Trolley Inc. will restore the cars to their original operating condition and paint them in the same style as the cars from the 1930s and 1940s.
