Friends of the .04 Trolley


We are the Friends of the .04 Trolley, the very last streetcar to operate in Denver, CO. Our mission is to support the cosmetic restoration with  fund raising and technical support. 

You can help our fundraising effort through Go Fund Me. Friends is a IRS 501(c)(3) and your contribution is tax deductible.




This picture shows the .04 arriving  in downtown Denver after Midnight, July 2, 1950 making this the very last streetcar to operate. Second from the left is E.R. McIntosh, C.C. Childres, Dispatcher. The motorman was Frank Wheatley, next to him is Thurston Cox, Superintendent of Central Division; next to him is R.E. (Dicky) Lichtenheld, dispatcher; and the supervisor is Kenny McFarland. The name of the man in the hat at the left is not known.

Colorado Preservation, Inc. was incredibly important in saving the .04 as without their intervention, the car likely would not have been preserved. The listing of the .04 on their "Most Endangered Places" was instrumental in gathering support for this project. This was was recognized during the 2022 "Places Saved" presentation.
