In April 1946 Canadian controlled Mexico Tramways Company placed the order with St.Louis Car Co. for one sample PCC car (Job 1663) which ran-on as an extra car with Johnstown order. Painted read and cream, the car was delivered in January 1947, being numbered 2000. The newest Mexican car, called 'La Bella Rosa' was placed in service in the deluxe, premium fare service running to Mexico's City famous floating gardens at Xochimilco. The Federal District's new Servicio de Transportes Electricos was organized in 1947, but did not completely take control of local transport until 1952. No more new PCC cars were bought and all next Mexico City's PCCs were second hand cars from Minneapolis and Detroit. Later car 2000 was repainted in the cream & dark green colors and left hand doors were fitted as on other PCC cars.
