Remarks & Notes 
Fort Collins Municipal Railway's Car 21 makes its way along Mountain Ave., and Loomis Ave., in Fort Collins, Colorado on August 6, 2016. The Denver and Interurban Railroad, a subsidiary of the Colorado and Southern Railroad, built a three-legged street car line in 1907 to expand Colorado's Front Range.However, the invention of the automobile made a huge impact on interurbans and the Fort Collins streetcar network grounded to a halt on July 10, 1918. Although operations seized, the city of Fort Collins realized it couldn't function properly without proper public transportation. So the city of Fort Collins asked citizens to purchase the system and pay $100,000 to revitalize it. Operations continued until 1951. Today, a group of volunteers part of the Fort Collins Municipal Railway Society maintains and operates Car 21 on parts of the Mountain Ave line from City Park to Howes.
