Mack318 Mack 318 on the Eastmoreland route. Photographer unknown. Source: a General Electric booklet promoting trolley coaches. Submitted by Ken Josephson and by Wally Young. Date unknwon. .

K400 Kenworth E2 400. Photographer unknown. Froomthe files of Peter Ehrlich. I suspect that this photo could have been taken at the Madrona Loop in Seattle. I cannot recall a loop like this in Portland. The trolleys were built in Seattle, and I know for certain that one was tested in Seattle before they were sent to Portland. Given that the number of this one is 400, it stands to reason that 400 was the one tested in Seattle. Does anyone have any further information on this? Resubmitted by Charlie Davis.
