IRR History.  In the summer of 1931, 35 high speed, light weight cars were delivered by the American Car and Foundry Co. to the Indiana Railroad. These "IRR" cars operated between Louisville, Indianapolis and Fort Wayne until 1941 when service was discontinued. Car #55 was then purchased by the Lehigh Valley Transit Co. becoming their #1030. It joined 13 other similar cars (1000 - 1008 & 1020 - 1023) which had been previously purchased from the Cincinnati and Lake Erie R.R. Co. The 1000 series operated on the L.V.T. until September 1951 when they were replaced by buses. Number 1030 is now at the Seashore Trolley Museum near Kennebunkport, Maine.

Ex. Cedar Rapids & Iowa City Railway (Crandic) #119, Ex. C&LE #119 is preserved at the Ohio Railway Museum. Crandic also had one IRR car , #120.

Other similar cars were used by the Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville and the Philadelphia & Westchester.
