The West Penn Railways Company was the result of the merger as many as 34 independent local trolley companies operated in region east of Pittsburgh. The bulk of West Penn Railway service during the greater part of its existence was provided by the 700-series center door interurban cars. In 1910 the company ordered the experimental centre-entrance car from Cincinnati Car Co., numbered 700 (it was destoyed by fire in December 1929), and between 1912 and 1925 thirty-nine cars of the same design were built both by Cincinnati Car Co. and in the West Penn's Connellsville Shops, being numbered 701-739. In 1933 all cars except 701 and 702 were rebuilt to the one-man specification by adding a front entrance. The 700-series cars had a modified version of the Brill 27-E1 trucks with the magnetic track brake. Car 739 was the last car to operate, on August 10, 1952. Bodies of cars 722 and 739 were preserved by the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum at Arden, PA. *) Portable headlight included within the model and could be installed by Customer.
