Here’s a great photograph we dug up on the U.S. Capitol Flickr page. It shows the old Senate Studebaker car. It held eight people and went back and forth between the Capitol and Russell (then known as the Senate Office Building). This was replaced in 1912 by a monorail track and in 1960 by dual tracks.
