Rio car 1875 is one of the most popular cars in our fleet, and is the only 'open' trolley car operating in Pennsylvania. It's great on sunny summer days, and everyone loves to ride it for our Ice Cream Trolley Nights.
The car racks up many miles, so it needs plenty of attention to keep it looking good and operating well. Thankfully, we have some experienced volunteers to help give it the needed care.
In preparation for upcoming operations, a long-time mechanical department volunteer attends to the controllers and airbrake valves of 1875.
