Watercolor… this 1000 Series Trolley was built by the Cincinnati Car Company in the 1930’s and served on the Cincinnati and Lake Erie railroad system, before the purchase of 43 of this type by the Lehigh Valley Transit Company in 1938. These Liberty Bell Trolleys remained in service until the LVTC ceased operations on September 6, 1951. Number 1030 is depicted arriving at Perkasie on the Allentown to Philadelphia route, through an underpass, cut through the Reading Railroad’s Bethlehem to Philadelphia rail line, about a mile southwest of the Reading”s Perkasie Tunnel. The LVT’s Liberty Bell Limited #1030 is still running on the Seashore Trolley Museum line in Kennebunkport, Maine, as of 2011.
