We built the dual gauge switch off the mainline for Carbarn Two, as well as the three track turnouts and tracks two and three.

Then we moved the first trolleys on rail inside.

The museum hosted the ARM convention.

We installed trolley poles on freight motor 402 and Bullet car 205 from Philadelphia.

We acquired the Bobcat loader.

Red Arrow center door car 61 was moved to museum from member Don Pharo’s farm in Bethlehem.

1990 In Review

In 1990, we cleared the Carbarn Two site of trees, graded and built the 80x200' building.

We performed minor woodwork on, painted and restored the headlights on plow 10.

We acquired and received the International stakebody truck and Conrail caboose (ex Pennsylvania RR).

We built the east switch at Altoff siding and extended the Old Shop track beside Buehler Shop.

Valley Railways car 12 was moved to become the first trolley inside Carbarn Two, and freight motor 402 and Bullet car 205 moved to museum from Philadelphia.

Together Again

Freight motor 402 and plow 10 were in Carbarn Two on Friday evening with the Liberty Liner. These three operated together for many years on the Philadelphia & Western line out of Upper Darby.

Members Day 2010!

Our Annual Members Day for the past few years have been moved to May to allow a more flexible schedule for all volunteers to have a good time and not have the worry of regular public trolley operation. This year was another enjoyable day even if the weather did not cooperate completely. A surprise was in store for all those attending. The Liberty Liner was moved outdoors for the first time in many years.

Philadelphia & Western 402 arrives at the Brick platform to load passengers for a trip to Blacklog Narrows.
