Montreal Streetcars 1000


MTC Car 1695 in the carbarn, ready to enter service onto the Cartierville line. This was the streetcar that took Montreal residents to it's Coney Island - Belmont Park on the North Shore of the island of Montreal. A major feature of this route was that it had it own right of way. It was like taking a ride out to the country with few stops as it "flew" along this private right of way. Everyone riding this line really knew that the seventeen was a prelude of more exciting things to come once they arrived at the the end of the line.... Belmont Park with its rollercoaster, ferris wheel, house of mirrors and dozens of other exciting rides. Photo by P. Lambert, donated by Curt Frey.
