The most ambitious restoration project our museum has undertaken to date is York Railways #163. Built in 1924 by the J.G. Brill car Co. in Philadelphia, 163 is a rare curved-side car. Another trolley builder, the Cincinnati Car Co., had a patent on the curved-side car. Brill built five curved-side cars for York Railways and in doing so infringed on the patent. Cincinnati sued Brill. Consequently, these five curved-side cars were the only ones built by Brill. York #163 is the only preserved and operable trolley from the York Railways system.
