12 Scranton Days of Xmas


December 20th, 2006


BY ROGER DUPUIS II – 12/20/2006

Six decades after retirement, a century-old Scranton trolley car made a short but important trip Tuesday.

It went inside.

After years spent resting under a tarp outside the maintenance barn at McDade Park, Scranton Transit Car 324 was unwrapped and carefully eased into the county’s new trolley restoration shop next to Lackawanna County Stadium. There, it will remain safely under cover until crews can begin the multiyear process of restoring the vehicle to working order.

Of 23 cars in the museum collection, only two have been in regular service since museum operations began about five years ago — most needing a fair bit of TLC before they can carry passengers again. And of those, several could be returned to service much easier than 324, which spent its hibernation years built into a Gouldsboro restaurant and bar.

“It would probably not be a candidate for full restoration, but it is one of only three Scranton trolleys known to be in existence,” said Rich Foley a county carpenter who works on trolley restoration.
