from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The Marmon Herrington Company of Indianapolis was a leading trolley coach manufacturer, and quickly came to dominate the field, such as it was, after entering the business following World War II. the lightweight but sturdily framed body and modern appearance of its single model, which was available in several lengths, gave it the edge during the last decade of trackless trolley expansion. A 1955 trackless order for Philadelphia was the last in the U.S. for some two decades, though electric buses, including all those now operated by Boston's MBTA, continued to be produced in Canada.
No. 336, acquired from the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority in 1982, is from the 1955 Marmon production.
