Gallery 714: Trams Around the World - The Electric City Trolley Museum, Scranton

Although not currently under restoration this is a double ended double truck coal trolley has been moved into the restoration shop near the PNC field for work to start in the future. Introduced into service in 1908, originally numbered 2624, it was built in the Eighth Street Shops of the Philadelphia Rapid Transit. Renumbered to D7 during 1912 it was used by the Philadelphia Rapid Transit company who operated several coal burning power plants and had a fleet of similar vehicles to carry coal to provide them with fuel. These power plants were shut down in the 1913 to 1925 period after which D7 was converted to a ‘vacuum car’ to clean the Subway – Surface line to 69th Street. It was retired during 1971 and was received in serviceable condition in Tansboro, New Jersey. This car was moved to Scranton during 2005.
