52 is one of 15 Birney cars built by the St Louis Car Company on their order number 1244. They were ordered by the Southern Pacific Railroad, owner of the Stockton Electric, in 1920. The cars in this order were numbered 46 to 60. These cars were built with the distinctive large anti-climber unique to cars on Southern Pacific properties. Cars 59 and 60 were transferred to Fresno in 1936. Southern Pacific sold the Stockton system to Pacific City Lines. Streetcar service lasted a few more years and car 52 continued to run in Stockton until the end of service in October 1941. At the end of service Stockton was an all Birney operation. The carbody was sold and became a cottage on a ranch near Lodi. The truck was found in a boat yard being used as a dolly moving boats around. The car was acquired and moved to the Museum in August 2003.
