More good news from Baltimore! Check out the status of restoration of Philadelphia Rapid Transit sweeper C-145 in the latest video from Operator Logan here.
In particular, the rear wood structure is in need of extensive work, and the car’s ceiling panels will be replaced. You can donate to the effort and watch a video about the project by visiting our new GoFundMe page here.
Alternatively, you can donate by more traditional means by printing out the attached flyer — you can click on the photo to bring up a printable PDF — and mailing it back to us with your donation.
These cars were workhorses of the Philadelphia fleet until the late 1950s. You can read about the history of 8042 and its sisters at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum site here.
