  1. Kenosha Streetcar 4616 Painted for Cincinnati Railways Taken on Saturday September 12, 2015 via my cell phone. On 54th St. at 10th Ave. Out on Kenosha Streetcar Appreciation Day. First day of service was on June 17, 2000. Can add to the Wiki. NOTES: The 4615 Johnstown car is out of service (since 2015). Unknown when it will return to service. A photo will eventually be added to Wiki. Milwaukee never got PCC's and would been numbered in the 1000-Series.
  2. Waukesha Metro 148 Taken on Saturday May 9, 2015 via my cell phone. On private driveway at Brookfield Square and assigned to Route 1. This where Waukesha Metro Route 1 and MCTS Route 6 & Gold Line connect. NOTE: One of the few to be painted in the current colors. Milwaukee County Transit System 1813 was leased to Waukesha Metro in the first half of 1982 and 1834 for a time in 1985. Both ran in the MCTS two-tone county green while in Waukesha. Seen photos from a Milwaukee Area transportation collector. Waukesha Metro began in September 1981. Acquired a number of buses from Nashville and Chicago RTA. More details along the way. Can add to the Wiki.

  4. Former Greyhound Terminal in Milwaukee

    Those were the golden years of Greyhound. I got to view a Scenicruiser (Private owner) outside Minneapolis in 2014. My dad rode those buses in the late 1960's & early 1970's. The first time my parents saw the old Greyhound Terminal in Chicago was in September 1974 on the move from Texas to Milwaukee.
  5. Former Greyhound Terminal in Milwaukee

    I remember the Greyhound Terminal in Chicago located in the loop. On Clark & Randolph. I was there as a kid with my parents back in the early 1980's. There were MC-7s, MC-8s and the new MC-9s at the time. Got to see a very few MC-5s too. Going in and out of the tunnel from Lower Wacker Drive. I was last there in July 1983. Opened in 1953 and closed on December 6, 1989. Demolished in early 1990 and replaced by a new building. I've been to the current terminal on Harrison and Des Plaines many times since late 1998. I will always remember the old terminal for years to come.

    Great catch. I don't see the Charter Services in my area that often. When I took these photos, it was 15°.
