Niles Cars 201-209 odd

Five cars were built by Niles in late 1904 and were similar to the earlier Niles cars except that they were 4 feet longer and included a toilet compartment. There were four coaches, 201,203, 205, and 207, and a deluxe buffet-parlor car "Carolyn". The coaches were motorized using 2 motors each from the earlier cars which had been delivered as 4 motor cars.

201 was built by Niles Car in 1904.  It was "modernized" by removing the arch windows in December 1940 and retired in 1955.

203 was built by Niles Car in 1904.  It was rebuilt in October 1945 and retired in 1959.

205 was built by Niles Car in 1904.  It became a trailer and later rebuilt in November 1940.  It was retired in 1959.

207 was built by Niles Car in 1904.  It was rebuilt in September 1940 and retired in 1955.

"Carolyn" was built by Niles Car in 1904.  It was rebuilt as 209, a trailer coach, in 1924 and rebuilt in May 1939.  It was retired in 1959.
