THE CHICAGO & JOLIET ELECTRIC RAILWAY COMPANY has been a pioneer in the development of light weight electric railway cars and has never allowed its engineering judgment to be hampered by the conventions of electric railway car building. It was to be expected therefore, when it began to be realized that radical departures from conventional design would be necessary in order to meet the increasing automotive competition, that this company should immediately turn its attention to the development of an electric street car which would meet the indicated demand of the riding public and attempt to win back the business which automobile competition is taking away. At the same time, it has been realized that in order to make operation of street railways profitable, immediate and drastic changes in the conventional design of car bodies, trucks, propulsion and control equipment is necessary. The Chicago & Joliet Electric Railway Company has endeavored in its experimental work to realize all the different benefits possible from advanced design.
