Friends of Philadelphia Trolleys and the Electric City Trolley Museum collaborated on hold the first-ever photo charter at the museum on Saturday, April 28, 2018.

This trip raised $2,000 towards the ongoing restoration of former Philadelphia Transportation Co. 1923 Brill-built car 5205, which is seen in the attached photo behind FPT members Bill Monaghan and Harry Donahue.
