Ex Red Arrow/Septa car 61 and ex Cumberland Valley Traction Co number 12. Both are in need of serious restoration. Thankfully beautiful restored sister cars to 61 operate at the Electric City Trolley Museum and the PA Trolley Museum. Number 12, however, is the last of its kind and the only survivor of the Cumberland Valley Traction Co. #rockhillfurnace #rockhilltrolleymuseum #trolley #interurban #harrisburg #cumberlandvalley #septa #iseptaphilly #septasocial #septaredarrow #jgbrill #madeinphilly #redarrowlines #railfannation #railfans_of_instagram #railfan #transitfan #trolley #streetcar #tram

1951 ACF-Brill bus that was just purchased by one of our members. It took some time but a little bit of screwing around got it running for the first time it had been in years. The bus was built originally for the US Army and part of the last few orders ACF-Brill ever filled before folding in 1952. #brill #acf-Brill #acfbrill #bus #usarmy #militaryvehicle #koreanwar #jgbrill #madeinphilly #rockhilltrolleymuseum

Two former Red Arrow cars at the Electric City trolley museum during a recent photo charter. Car 80 is a Brill suburban "master unit" type which ran on the Philadelphia Suburban lines in Delaware county from 1932-1982 when retired by Septa. The other, car 64, was built for the Philadelphia and Western Railroad, later absorbed by Red Arrow and now the Norristown High Speed Line. It is a "Stratford Car" and was built for interurban service, running from 1927-1992. Both cars were built by Philadelphia's own JG Brill Company.

Great time for all at the first ever photo charter at the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton,PA. Hosted by the Friends of the Philadelphia Trolleys the attendees were treated to a day of riding and photography on two of their Red Arrow cars: 80 and 164.

TMNY Throwback Thursdays returns this week to an image from our early days in Kingston, New York. Here to the right, we have our J.G. Brill “Doodlebug” car no. 120 posing next to a former Staten Island Rapid Transit ME-1 car, no. 508, on the left. In our early days, no. 508 was used as our gift shop and ticket office while our current shop building was being built. Visitors would board no. 120 from this car through a special platform. Sadly, we would lose car no. 508 to arson in 1991. No. 120, meanwhile, lives on. It was recently mechanically restored and is today used on special occasions to ferry visitors between T.R. Gallo Park on Broadway, our museum, and Kingston Point Park. Photo by Glenn Smith, July 23, 1988. James McGinty Kodachrome Slide Collection.

Our volunteers have been hard at work every weekend this summer, doing their best to make our museum shine!
These photos were taken last Saturday August 5th and Saturday August 12th by our volunteers Justin Myrick and Patrick McGinty. Swipe to see them. On August 5th, volunteers cleaned up and trimmed some of the brush along our mainline. Interurban car no. 120 assisted volunteers along the line.
On August 12th, volunteers completed a clean-up of part of our yard, picking scrap wood and metal from the property to be carted away. Our City of New York IND R4 car no. 825 was given a good scrub down in preperation for exterior body work, which will begin shortly. And, our J.G. Brill interurban car no. 120 received more exterior car body work, in oreparation for a repaint, which will also begin very soon.
As always, many thanks to all of our volunteers and trustees for all of their efforts!

Today, volunteers proceeded with another yard shuffle that led to a first in our museum's history. A five-car consist operated with our Whitcomb diesel locomotive no. 9 and J.G. Brill interurban "doodlebug" car no. 120, as they pulled flatcar F401, IRT Lo-V car no. 5600, and IND R4 car no. 825. The shuffle was done in preparation for two major projects, the restoration of Whitcomb diesel no. 9 and that of R4 car no. 825. Both will begin in a matter of weeks, in conjuntion with restoration work on BMT "Q-Type" car no. 1602A and B&QT PCC trolley car no. 1000. Please swipe to view all photos.

Meanwhile, as volunteers were installing signals on our museum grounds, other volunteers were prepping our "doodlebug" car no. 120 for a repaint! Note the yellow paint scheme underneath the red, as that was the color no. 120 wore originally when new. Lots of progress at TMNY! Photo: Steven Myrick.
