Pictures 14B-7, 14B-8, and 14B-9.
The early 300s (cars 300-309) were 1907 products of St. Louis Car Co. (order no. 671).  In the upper picture, we see car 300 loaded with passengers.  The middle picture shows one of the group on the siding in front of the courthouse in Urbana, loading passengers on a charter party to Homer Park.  It appears that the boy in the left center, staring wistfully at the car, is not going along.  The bottom picture shows car 308 on the Ogden-Homer line assisting in snow clearing.  Note the “sophisticated” snow removal equipment.
