A banner day for C-145 restoration

On March 2, 2019, Baltimore Streetcar Museum and Friends of Philadelphia Trolleys members started working on Matthew E. Nawn’s Eagle Scout project to renovate 1923 Philadelphia Rapid Transit sweeper car C-145.

On July 11, 2020, we installed the last piece of the tongue and groove on the sides of the car, a major milestone in the effort. Members of the group are seen here celebrating the occasion.

The project is not yet finished, however. If anyone would like to make a donation, please click on the donation button here on our website.

Thanks to everyone who has donated and participated in this worthwhile effort!
