Fresno Trolley Cars (Standard Dinner)Fresno Trolley Cars/Standard Diner (1912/1925)

1731 S. Cherry Avenue
Dragon model and Birney model street cars with kitchen, storage, and restroom facilities added.

This diner is constructed from the only known surviving street cars from the Fresno Traction Company. In 1935 a surplus trolley was hauled to this location, and the following year was remodeled as a cafe. It is unclear whether the second trolley was moved to the lot at the same time or at a later date. Originally known as the Standard Diner, it ws renamed "Trolley Car Carole's" in 1968.
