  1. Horsecar As I was researching my PCC Streetcar I kept on coming across two blurry sepia tinged images of one of the earliest streetcars in Kansas City's transport history. So before I could build the latest KC Streetcar (a UBOS 3) I knew I had to build a MOC of this. I had no idea as to the original color scheme so I decided to abdicate and take black and white pictures. These were light vehicles with a narrow gauge. As the track were laid on dirt and bare rock derailments were a common occurrence. When these happened the male passengers were expected to disembark and shove the carriage back onto the track while the females remained inside. During later years the revenue from tickets would reach $250,000 and the proceeds from the sale of Manure $10,000 - so I had to ensure that I included the obligatory bucket and shovel. Drivers were expected to work 15 hours a day, 7 days a week in all weathers in an open carriage for about 8c/hour pay. The horses were luckier in that they were worked for 4-6 hours through the day. Given the working conditions the smile on this guy seems a little too fixed. Comments, criticism and ridicule welcome!
