July Trolley Care Day Helps 65

Today saw a great turn out for the summer session of the Trolley Care Program. A fantastic amount of process was made on 65. Galen finished re-shimming 65's slider plates with Paul and Christopher's assistance. Julia, Sully, and Noah prepared the car's clerestory windows for primer. Wil then masked the glass and Julia and Christopher primed the windows. Wil and Kelly painted most of 65's roof. Galen traced wiring in the car, identifying the lighting and heating circuits. Bruce is making replacement pieces for the roof corners.

John has finished the disassembly of 3001's west end and is beginning steel work. Fred is cleaning components that were removed so they will be ready for re-installation.

  1. Thanks for the share. Just like what you said. Keeping the trolleys rolling. It's to great to see so much teamwork and hard work that goes into restoring these trolleys. Great job everyone and have a great day.
