NJT PCC #6 Press Release

The Rockhill Trolley Museum is happy to announce the acquisition of former New Jersey Transit/Transport New Jersey/Public Service Coordinated Transport PCC Car #6.

NJT PCC #6 Acquisition Fund

For nearly 50 years, a small fleet of PCC cars carried passengers along the Newark City Subway, the last operation remaining in New Jersey from the heyday of the trolley. One car, #6, was cosmetically restored to its 1954 appearance shortly before retirement in 2001 and was set aside for preservation.

Rockhill Trolley Museum is seeking donations for acquisition and transportation of the car to Rockhill Furnace, as well as to fund touch up work to improve the appearance of the vehicle before it enters the museum’s operating fleet. Barring any unforeseen conditions found during preparation of the car for operation, the museum’s goal is to have the car return to public operation this summer.
