The Seashore Trolley museum has updated their website.
https://trolleymuseum.org/

Additionally, if your not following some of their other Facebook pages, you are defiantly missing out.

I have since learned that Seashore is restoring former Boston Picture Window PCC 3274 to operation and will paint it in the Grey Ghost scheme. They are currently fundraising.

It looks like CLRV 4027 has been retired. Only one of the cars Boston leased (4029) is still in service.

I'm wondering if the museum has a pair of old freight car trucks, 33" wheels that they would be looking to sell? Thanks.

Please excuse me for not reviewing all posts, but what is the status of the Budapest subway car? I rode them in service years ago and am wondering whether there's any interest in or possibility of restoring it at least cosmetically?

Granted, last time I saw it was a couple years ago, but at that time it was under cover in one of the carbarns and looked to be in fairly good shape cosmetically.

It appears that all three CLRVs Boston leased have been scrapped.
