Chicago & West Towns Railway Co. was formed in 1913, acquiring County Traction Co. operations in Chicago's western suburbs, and the Suburban Railroad Co. The Evanston Railway Co. meanwhile was formed to acquire the County Traction Co. operations within Evanston. In March 1912 twenty arch-roof semi-steel cars were ordered by Suburban Railroad Co. from the McGuire-Cummings Car Manufacturing Company. These cars were pattened after the Chicago Railways Company's 'turtleback' cars of 1577-1720 series. When this order was cancelled by Suburban, 14 of these cars, numbered 107-120 were delivered to County Traction Co. and then were acquired by Chicago & West Towns Railways in 1913. In 1928 this group of cars was converted to one-man operation and the bulkheads were removed. Beginning in December 1938, the Chicago & West Towns Railways repainted 46 streetcars in a new very attractive color scheme of dark blue & white with silver roof and maroon striping. In this livery the cars remained until end of the C&WT rail service in 1948.
