Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum
The doors are plywood, probably replacements, easily rebuilt and there are spares.
Note that you can see that the steps are rusted out here.
Between the two cars there is enough plexiglass to populate the windows on 3321. They are flat glass, easily replaced by popping them out of their gaskets. There is plenty of gasket material, and it is still being made.
The car was painted about ten years ago, but I don't think it was done professionally.
This is the rear of the car, above the windows is the catcher for the pole rope.
Here you can see the fiberglass seats installed in the 1970's.
The part in the middle is for the middle car. There is a lot of gasket material on the floor.
These resistors under the car will need to be replaced.
The control gear cabinet. The sheet metal is in worse shape than the control gear itself.
This motor disconnect switch needs very little work to be operable.
The lead acid battery probably needs replacement.
Here are the electro-magnet emergency track brakes.
The wheels were replaced shortly before the car was taken out of service.
"Watch your step" indeed.
This is the parts car, damaged somewhat by a loader as it was moving down the cobblestone streets of Brooklyn.
An electro-pneumatic door 'engine',
for opening and closing a door.
The back-up controller in the parts car.
Looking toward the back of 3321. The back-up controller is under the window.
The seats will need cleaning and many of the legs need repair or replacement.
Tiki torches included!
Two more door engine shots, in 3321. Some lines have been cut.
View out the front of 3321
Motorman's seat on 3321. Most of the switches were frozen.
Looking down the front steps of 3321.
The cables are not part of the car.
The floors were tiled, looks like they were nailed down as they came loose.
Plywood sub-floor, replacement should be straight-forward.
