Birney Safety Streetcar

These small, light, steel streetcars were designed for one man operation, which made them a boon to labor strapped cities during World War I and economical to operate during the Great Depression. Originally called “Safety Cars” to emphasize that they were safe to ride, even without a conductor, they are better known as “Birneys” after their co-designer, Charles O. Birney.
