Philadelphia, PA
Philadelphia Transportation Company era
PTC/SEPTA all-electric PCC 2158 is seen north on 9th Street at Snyder Avenue in 1961.  Trolleybus overhead and switches were installed for route 79 but the trackage on Snyder Avenue from 4th to Broad still remained intact.  Route 79, the next-to-last double-end car line, got trolleybuses after 5 years as a bus line. Route 47 went bus in 1969 and was rerouted north on 7th Street and extended south to Whitman Plaza.
