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

Scranton Railways 324 was built in 1903 by J G Brill Company and is one of a group of ten similar cars numbered 322 to 331. A double truck double ended arch roof city trolley car it rides on two Brill 27G trucks which mount four Westinghouse model 101 traction motors. The car has a General Electric K35 controller at each end. Rebuilt during 1916 it was withdrawn during 1941 and its body was sold for use as a diner in Covington, Pennsylvania, eventually being incorporated into a building. The Electric City Trolley Museum acquired the carbody in March 2000 and began the restoration of the car. It is currently in the restoration shop near PNC field and is being wired for restoration to service (as can be seen from the wires coming out the windows!).
