The BC Electric Interurban was the largest urban railway system in Canada. Number 1304 was built and named the Duke of Connaught in honour of the Duke visiting Canada in 1911. It was a private elegant car. Soon after the Duke's visit, economics called for it to be converted into a more typical commuter passenger car in 1912.
Number 1304 ran on the Fraser Valley line between Vancouver and Chilliwack. It served the city streets of Vancouver and open country to the farming communities along the way to Chilliwack. It could obtain a top speed of 80 mph. The car's motors can output 400 horsepower and run as multiple-unit or MU with up to four cars.
