Satisfied with its first 100 PCCs of 1500-series St.Louis Public Service ordered 100 more cars in December 1940. The whole batch, numbered 1600-1699, was delivered by the August 1941. They had the standee windows and the 'next car' light on the dash. As in 1500-series, fifty cars (1600-1649) had the General Electric equipment while remaining fifty had the Westinghouse equipment. Starting from late 40s 1600-series cars were modified to make them comparable to the 1700-series and most of the cars looks almost identical to 1700s at the end of its life. Five cars (1629,1654,1656,1686 and 1699) were sold to Tampico, Mexico in 1966 and 45 cars of 1600-series remained in service at end of the streetcar operation in May 1966. In the mid-40s the upper beltrail on 1600-series PCCs was removed (probably because of the corrosion problems) and from late 40s the modernization program was started; all 1600s were modified as more as possible to match the 1700-series cars. However, they retain their original interior with two rows of double seats.
