Rio Open Car #1875

Rio #1875 Restoration

During 1998, we completed a major cosmetic restoration of one of our most popular cars, #1875. The green it wore previously has been replaced by a bright yellow and cream scheme, reminiscent of colors of Conestoga Traction Co. of Lancaster County, PA.

In the spring of 1998, the car looked much different! Its new and unpainted dash (the curved front panel) lies to the right on the floor. In the lower left corner is the standard gauge truck being assembled to regauge PCC #2743.
