No. 25 Interurban Streetcar

For nearly 40 years, the No. 25 Interurban Streetcar served the electric rail transit system that connected Denver, Colorado with her neighboring cities Golden and Boulder.  From 1911 to 1950, Car No. 25 ran from Golden to Denver, passing through Lakewood, as one of seven cars on the passenger service. It is now the only remaining, completely intact car from the transit system that once united the Denver Metropolitan Area.

After 22 years of restoration efforts, the restored No. 25 is on both the Colorado State Register of Historic Properties and the National Register of Historic Places, and is currently located at the Denver Federal Center awaiting relocation to the future Oak Street Transit Museum. 

On August 14, 2010 and August 13, 2011, the restored No. 25 Interurban Streetcar was open to the public.  The West Corridor Historical Rail Cooperative and the Lakewood Heritage Center recorded interviews with local residents about their experiences with the electric rail system.
