While serving as Cleveland's Street Railway Commissioner, Peter Witt designed an all-steel, single-operator streetcar that distinguished itself from others of the era by its use of the center door as an exit only. Passengers could pay the waiting conductor as they boarded at the front and exited at the center of the car, an arrangement which reduced stop times, improved schedules and increased efficiency. Though designed originally for Cleveland, the Peter Witt Street Car went on to service in cities throughout the world from the 1930s until the early 1960s. The Williams O Scale Peter Witt Streetcar is the first all new tooling to be released Williams by Bachmann. Available in Philadelphia, it is ready to transport your passengers wherever your trolley line travels. Streetcar Features: All-wheel drive; Precision can motor with two flywheels; Hidden drive train and electronics; Detailed interior; Painted interior with seats; Photo-etched brass safety screen; Digital trolley bell; and Electronic reversing unit.
