In May, 1857, the Philadelphia and Delaware River Railroad was chartered, giving the right to build a road from Philadelphia to Frankford, upon which cars drawn by horses could be used. Horse cars were in use from January 8, 1858, to November 17, 1863, when the Frankford and Southwark Passenger Railway introduced "dummies" which ran from the depot, Fourth and Berks Streets, to Frankford. The first was called the Alpha, and the second the Sea Gull.As other cars were added, they were called No. 1, 2, etc. The engine was on one side, and the upright boiler, was on the other side. The engineer sat between them. These "dummies" with attached trailer seated 64 passengers. The trailers (old horse cars) had additional seats on the roof. A light iron spiral ladder was hooked on the rear of the car.On April 1 1892 the Frankford and Southwark (Fifth and Sixth) Passenger Railway Company took possession of the Tenth and Eleventh (Citizens Line) Passenger Railway Company.
