The Kenosha Electric Streetcar opened to the public on June 17, 2000

which were refurbished and wheelchair lifts added.
Those cars retain their Toronto numbers, but have
been painted in schemes representing other cities
that operated PCC cars.

The route is about 2 miles long in an oval shaped loop.  It is single track with a
short passing (storage) siding at the end of 56th Street near the Public Museum.
