Montreal Streetcars 2200


Two PCCs on McGill Street at Youville Street in the old Montreal Financial District. The streetcar in the forefront is heading south on McGill street to it's terminal at the Port of Montreal and Place Youville. The foot of McGill Street was the interchange point with inter-urbans of the Montreal and Southern Counties Railway. The PCC in the background is heading north on McGill Street to Victoria Square and it's trip through mid-town Montreal and Mount Royal.

PCCs were a familiar site on the 29 Outremont-Youville line and often were referred to as the "Outremont Cars". The line operated on McGill Street at the Port of Montreal and headed north on McGill through Victoria Square, east on St. Antoine (Craig), north on Bleury Street and Park Avenue, west on Laurier, west on Cote Ste. Catherine Road, south on Vincent d'Indy (Bellingham Road), west on Edouard Montpetit Boulevard (Maplewood Avenue), south on Decelles, west on Queen Mary Road to Decarie Boulevard and Snowdon Junction. Cars turned at Victoria Square instead of Youville Square after 1.10 a.m. Note that former street names are shown in (brackets).

Sections of the 29 Outremont line are currently operated by bus routes 129 Cote Ste. Catherine and 51 Edouard Montpetit. Joseph Testagrose caught this shot during the last days of streetcar operation in Montreal.
