Trolley Museum of New York videos

I took these videos of a ride on Johnstown Trolley car 358 at TMNY. These were taken in 2009, when I last went to the museum. I got two more videos I haven't uploaded yet.

Here's a video from the same 2009 trip I took when riding Johnstown Trolley car 358 on the Strand to the Trolley Museum of New York. The museum isn't electrified yet so 358 runs on a diesel engine until the museum can electrify. The tracks on East Strand Road need to be replaced as the ride over them can be very bump and as a result the trains have to move at a very low speed over the Strand. Taken in August 2009.
