Thought I would start a thread to see how many trolley cars are still out there in the rust belt.

I'm wondering if there are any double ended Jewett heavy interurbans left anywhere.If you are interested in preserved cars, by Jewett or any other builder, use the data base search function at:

It was some sort of failed trolley museum.That could be Trolley Valhalla's location at Jobstown, N.J. Some of the cars are now in Scranton, Pa., one went to Seashore Trolley Museum in Maine, some others to Arden, Pa. If the photos are older than 1971, then it's their former location in Tansboro, N.J.
