The Master Units have become a permanent part of Yakima’s YVT collection. After twice nearly being sold to cities elsewhere, the streetcars found a friend in Yakima philanthropist Al DeAtley. DeAtley purchased the streetcars from the bank that had seized them to pay off defaulted loans from the defunct Yakima Interurban Lines Association. On February 20th of this year, DeAtley donated them to the city of Yakima for permanent preservation. The streetcars had been appraised in 2001 at $175,000. YVT is very appreciative of Mr. DeAtley’s generosity.

The city of Yakima has approved funding for reglazing the YVT carbarn windows. In addition to replacing broken glass, Lexan® will be applied to the outside of each window to protect it from assault by rocks and pigeons.
