A streetcar that ran in Cincinnati in the early to mid 20th century was unveiled yesterday as a newly restored acquisition by the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in Chartiers, Washington County.

Former Cincinnati Street Railway streetcar No. 2227 was built in 1919 by the Cincinnati Car Co. The museum acquired the car in 2009 from the Lake Shore Electric Railway in Cleveland.

The Pennsylvania Trolley Museum this year is marking its 50th anniversary. It opened to the public June 23, 1963. To learn more, visit the museum's website.
