Street car operations in Cornwall ended in July 1949 and most passenger carrying equipment was scrapped shortly thereafter.  This car, 29, which had started its working life in Fort Worth, Texas and arrived in Cornwall in 1939, survived somewhat longer and was made available by a cooperative management for fantrips over the remaining and still extensive network of track, with electric overhead intact, devoted to the CSR’s freight operations.  This scene illustrates one of the risks of operating such an excursion on a Sunday when freight movements normally took the day off.  After some delay the impasse was resolved and 29 completed its left turn from Marlborough Street onto William Street.
