The order for interurban cars used to open the line included 2 compatible freight motors. When 1 of them burned about 1940, a replacement was bought from Eastern Michigan Rwys. The old freight motor 401 and the last of those old passenger cars 46, which could also be used as a locomotive, are in the Electric City Trolley Museum and Station in Scranton, Pa. The replacement freight motor 402 is at Rwys. to Yesterday in Orbisonia, Pa.
