3000's controls. Note the foot button where 3001 has a pedal
We were also shown car 2350. This car has been restored and is operable. It is similar to what 3000 and 3001 would have looked like before they were modified for service in New Haven. (Treadle doors were added, along with the seat configuration changing to allow for more standee passengers.)
2350 has jump seats at either end to provide additional seating for passengers
This 'high-chair' allows the motorman to sit while operating, but flips to become a passenger seat when the car changes ends
2350 has wooden seats, just like 3000 and 3001 did when they first began service in Torrington
The shop also got to visit with car 1792, a double truck Brooklyn car that has many similarities to 169. We met the folks restoring and 1892 horse car (Metropolitan #3), which is coming along nicely, Then we took the time to wander through the other barns before heading home. We'd like to thank Bill for taking the time to show us both 3000 and 2350.
