    According to the P.E. 500 and 530 class car diagrams, cars 535 to 549 had two trolley poles installed. Photos of cars 536 and 538 show one trolley pole. Perhaps the forthcoming book on 500 class cars will clarify this issue,

      Only PE 500-class cars that were assigned to subway service had two trolley poles.

    I would like to know the exact title of this book. I am very interested in PE 500 class equipment – especially #530. And I am looking to acquire the Suydam HO brass representation of the real thing. 🙂

    The book is “Pacific Electric’s 500-Class Cars/Interurban Pioneers” by John C. Smatlak. Publisher is Shade Tree Books, and it is available at the OERM bookstore/reception center.

    I bid and won a Suydam HO brass Suydam Wood Interurban “Medium Five” #530 Coach from eBay a few days ago. It’s in “brand new” condition and it’s beautiful. My Suydam trolley/interurban car collection is growing. Pretty soon I’ll have all the Suydams I’m looking for.

    These brass models from Suydam are well made and sturdy. They just don’t make ’em like that anymore. Sigh. 🙁
