Cable Car Classics recently delivered trolleys to two clients. Some background on those clients is listed below:


Hino Motors is a division of Toyota Japan, specializing in quality truck manufacturing. Cable Car Classics, Inc., worked closely with Hino for over two years on the design and integration of a Hino bus chassis and a Cable Car Classics, Inc., Golden Gate body. The end results of that collaboration are pictured below. These right-hand drive trolleys were delivered to Japan in late 1998/early 1999 and were an instant hit with passengers. Features built into these trolleys included plush tour-type seating, a sunken center aisle, Hino 215 horsepower diesel engines and, of course, the traditional quality woodwork and excellent finish that have come to be known as the Cable Car Classics, Inc., trademark. Hino and Cable Car Classics, Inc., continue to work together in an effort to bring the best of both worlds to the Japanese transit market: Japanese vehicle engineering and American craftmanship.

Cable Car Classics recently delivered the last of four trolleys built to the exacting specifications of the Whatcom Transit Authority, based in Bellingham, Washington. These trolleys, some of which are pictured below, included many modern amenities, such as all ADA compliant accessories, (wheelchair lift, stop request system, wheelchair and scooter tie-downs), driver-controlled stereo and PA system, Cummins 250 horsepower diesel engines and Allison B300 World transmissions equipped with retarders.

The four trolleys were named Stella, Annabel, Lucille and Ruby, and have been resolutely serving the Whatcom clientele since their staggered delivery in the fall of 1998.


Over the years, Cable Car Classics, Inc. has delivered trolleys to quite a few customers. Some examples of our work in years past are pictured below:
