Streetcar 654

This is a nice photo, but it is NOT Washington DC. NONE of the streetcar companies had cars of that type with number 654. It appears to be a Pittsburgh Railway [or predessor] car head to Washington PA. The two gentlemen ARE the motorman and conductor, not maybe.

Car 654

Since the car is on private right of way with overhead wiring, The car is inbound to Washington from Glen Echo, MD

No, like the other comment

No, like the other comment said, any cars with this number were made by another manufacturer. Check the book "One Hundred Years of Capital Traction" by LeRoy O. King. This book gives the roster numbers, as well as pics of the models and makes in DC. You can tell on appearance what model each car is and then compare that to the roster numbers. You will find a contradiction in this car model being a car number 654.
