Two long-time friends of ours from the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum were visiting: Bill Fronczek and Bruce Wells. Norm and I talked to them for a while about various subjects., and we looked at some of the cars from Trolleyville. They've been here several times before over the years, of course.
I spent some time working on replacing a couple of parts in the 319's air system, and looked at the 321 again.
Many of the Car Department regulars went to East Chicago today to help get several South Shore cars ready for movement. They had been stored at a steel mill there, and are being transferred to East Troy. This may be the last time interurban cars travel on their own wheels over a regular railroad, so I'm hoping somebody will send us some pictures!
Here are the window frames from Elgin & Belvidere car 208, that Bob mentioned below. These are removable storm sash for winter use, since there's no way to raise the window.
Finally, Henry Vincent brought out the open car, Veracruz #19, for some training trips, and then revenue service. I got qualified on the car along with several others, and it should be running again tomorrow.
I had to leave early to go to a cocktail party, but I plan to be running the 308 and 309 all day tomorrow, along with hundreds of antique automobiles and other vehicles on display. You won't want to miss it!
