Hattie Sheehan receives training on a one-person operated Capital Transit streetcar in Washington, DC in June 1943. The transit company was hit with a severe shortage of streetcar and bus operators during World War II, but refused to hire African American operators. In an attempt to fill the shortage, Capital Transit hired white women as streetcar and bus operators from 1943-45. A few of the women continued to operate until streetcars were phased out in Washington. The last streetcar ran in 1962.

January 1962 and signed for the L4 Line to Chevy Chase Center is a 1953 White Motor Company Model 1150 DW (the W meaning wide bodied) and one of 147 delivered originally to Capital Transit. .Powered by Cummins underfloor pancake Diesel engines combined with Spicer 918 torque converters, these forty foot long 102 inch wide coaches were among the very last to see passage through White's assembly lines as all bus production ended for that manufacturer in October of the same year.
