Founded in 1901 in Niles, Ohio, the Niles Car and Manufacturing Co. produced a range of machinery for railroads and sugar mills. The company gained a reputation for making high quality passenger cars, trolley cars, and locomotives. Niles trolleys and interurbans ran in many cities including Rochester, Yakima, Minneapolis, Toledo, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, Chicago, San Diego, Milwaukee, and of course Cleveland and Boise. The company stopped making railroad cars in 1917. This Niles catalog dates from 1910, and features the company's full range of electric railway products.
