This car was built in1895 by Brill for the Lynchburg Traction & Light Company located in Lynchburg, Virginia. It was subsequently sold to the Five Mile Beach Electric Railway in Wildwood, N.J. where it operated until 1952. After closing of service in Wildwood that year, the car came to C.E.R.A in 1952. She is one of only a very small handful of this type of car left in the world.
