The Minnesota Streetcar Museum's Twin City Rapid Transit PCC No. 322 poses under the William Berry Road bridge on the Como-Harriet Streetcar Line in Minneapolis. I had it posed under the bridge, but Mark Lynn had the great idea to include the bridge in the shot and Jeff Terry did the lighting. Thanks guys!

No. 322 is from a 1946 order of 40 cars that were delivered by the St. Louis Car Company for Twin City Lines. No. 322 arrived in December 1946 and entered service the following month. In October 1953, No. 322 was one of thirty cars sold to Public Service Coordinated Transport of Newark, New Jersey. They in turn sold it to the Greater Cleveland RTA in April 1978. In August 1990, No. 322 was purchased by the Museum for restoration and operation. It returned to service in 2000
