One of the closed rolling stock of the Shoreline Trolley Museum. It would be great to have this car fully restored and in working condition.

Yeah...they have some cool stuff up there. Old SIR cars. They put garbage in the journal boxes, I know there's a reason why but I'm trying to figure out what it is...

 

After you guys left last time Harry we got the private tour of 6688...all in all it was pretty cool. Next time I'm up there I plan on checking out more of what's laid up in/around the barns or on the other side where the SIR car and the Standard are.

Too bad I had to go. I really wanted to operate that one if it was available or 1689. Maybe next time.

 

Wow, yeah, it would be great to see that restored.

 

I believe slowly they're at least trying to restore some or most of their collection.

Very nice photo! I think R17 6688 should be running again soon, they were waiting on parts from (NYCT).
