Edmonton 31 was in service from 1911 until 1949. Known as a "Prairie Preston" or "Small Preston" after its builder, the Preston Car and Coach Company, this class of car was the workhorse of most Prairie street railway systems. Regrettably it is the only known surviving body of its class. In poor condition, it will be retained as a pattern for a possible future replica car.
