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

And fast forward to today and the car has been restored using maximum traction trucks from Portugal and has been displayed in the main museum building in Scranton. The car actually dates from 1898 and was built by J G Brill Company as a double trucked double ended twelve bench open car. It passed to the Metropolitan Street Railroad as their 931 via a 1900 lease and was returned as of January 7 1908 to the Third Avenue Railway. This car was sold to the Five Mile Beach Railroad located in Wildwood, New Jersey and was renumbered to 24. The Five Mile Beach Railroad retired 24 during 1945; the body of this car was acquired by the Trolley Valhalla organization during 1960 and was still in a deteriorated body only state when it was moved to Buckingham Valley in 1975. This car remained in Buckingham Valley after 1999 where a restoration shop was established on behalf of the Electric City Trolley Museum.
