Philly's oldest remaining trolley arrives at our museum

November 21, 2003:

Our latest acquisition, tower car D-39 has arrived by truck. The car, built in 1908 as an ash car, was used until recently as an overhead-wire repair vehicle on Philadelphia's SEPTA transit system.

The car spent recent years operating on broad gauge trucks, but was placed back on standard gauge trucks so it can be used on our railroad.
