SummaryEdit

Description

Preserved and restored 1940 Seattle trolleybus 798, a PCF-Brill (built by Pacific Car & Foundry under license from the Brill Company), carrying passengers on a special excursion on April 28, 1990, the 50th anniversary of the Seattle trolleybus system. It is pictured eastbound on East John Street (at 21st Avenue E.), which has been served by trolleybuses since 1981, with the conversion of route 43 to trolleybuses. Route 43's predecessor (before 1978) was route 4-Montlake, which used trolleybuses until 1970, so No. 798 was displaying signage for route 4, although route 4 did not actually follow East John Street but followed East Madison Street between 14th & Pike and 23rd Avenue. Trolleybus 798 has been designated a Seattle landmark by city's Landmarks Preservation Board (listed as the Brill Trolley, as "trolley" is the common local term for trolleybuses in Seattle). It wears the distinctive paint scheme that was worn by all trolleybuses of the Seattle Transit System from the trolleybus system's opening in 1940 until about 1943.
