Car 119

Built for the Carolina Power and Light Co, the 119 was built in Philadelphia by the Brill Manufacturing Company in 1927. It was purchased by the CP&L Co and ran for only 8 years when it was retired in 1934. It was then purchased by Fortunes Trolley Car Park in Skyland, NC, were it served as one of 16 trolleys used for lodging. After a time it was then purchased by the Kings and became a residence in the Biltmore Forest area for a while. Then in the 1990s it was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Rouser. In 2008 we were fortunate to buy it and begin restoration work on it.
