looks like PATCO is finally going to totally rebuild the aging Lindenwold Rail Yard, about time. http://www.courierpostonline.com/story/news/local/2017/07/02/drpa-spend-millions-renovate-lindenwold-rail-yard/414403001/

I guess they are going to have to get rid of those two old Brill cars that have been sitting in the yard all these past years...Image

TT: Those two 1936 Bridge cars aren't going anyplace...

They are being preserved and held at Lindenwold by PATCO for either static display or operable condition similar to the 3
BSL cars at FRTC (a 4th is a parts source) that will go someplace worthwhile soon (wishful thinking) for posterity...

Awesome art Deco history. These belong in a museum.

Why doesn't PATCO use components from the unrebuilds to bet the Bridge cars in operating condition?
