In January 1953 Shaker Heights Rapid Transit agreed to buy twenty PCC cars from Twin City Rapid Transit, TRCT numbers 340-359. The sale price was $415,000, it included some electrical work and replacing the 25-inch wheels with the 26-inch version favored by SHRT. The cars were repainted by the TCRT shop in the Shaker livery: bright yellow body, three green stripes and gray roof. Five of the cars, numbered 51-55 were not given MU controls and were intended for non-rush-hour service in Shaker Boulevard branch. Other 15 cars were rebuilt for MU operation (56-70 series). Car 55 was the first to be shipped to SHRT, arriving in March 1954, all twenty cars were delivered by September 1954.
