Well I think I found it. Seattle Metro Transit. It's a Pacific Car and Foundry (PCF-Brill) Model 40SMT (of Seattle Metro Transit). According this info "PCF-Brill trolley coach 798 is the sole survivor of 100 built in 1940 for Seattle Transit System. All of them, including 798, were retired in 1963" With this we have ID the maker. In the M.E.H.V.A. page (organization of current and retired King County/METRO employees, dedicated to the preservation of Seattle and King County's transit heritage) we find 798 (same model than main picture) as "798 Seattle Transit System 1940 PCF-Brill 40 SMT" and later here some pictures of it. This model looks different from other Seattle's trolleys as Twin Coach ( see here) with 5 windows between the two side doors.

According all this info, it seems the trolley used was the numered 798 that we can see in the M.E.H.V.A. page:

Well and now the questions:
1.- Do you think Pacific Car and Foundry is too large and useless and we could use PCF instead of it. If yes we should change the previous models here. Just only two military armored vehicle.
2.- It seems the maker is PCF-Brill. Is it useful create a new maker for the site or just keep PCF as maker and Brill for extra info?

Opinions? fsbus, we need you
