Post subject:  Scranton Transit Trolley #505 souvenirs now available

Hello, we have been hard at work on Scranton car #505, our 1929 Osgood Bradley electromobile. Metal work on the main body was completed this Summer, and we were able to repair the original side sheets and letterboards. Fortunately, we had some pieces from New Bedford/Queensboro Bridge car #601, including several roof carlines and tee post patch sections which have been woven into the #505.

To commemorate this important step forward, we are offering a very limited number of souvenirs featuring an actual piece of window post from the #505. Mounted on a base of cherry or oak hardwood, you will receive a six to eight inch tee post section - patina and all. Each piece will come with a letter of authenticity, features a brass identification plate, and the base bottom is felted to prevent scratches.

If you would like one of these in time for the holidays, I recommend that you place your order during the first week of December. Please contact me directly at trolley505@yahoo.com for instructions. We currently have less than a dozen remaining and the asking price is a donation of $100 which includes shipping. Sales are first come, first served. All proceeds go directly toward the restoration of Scranton Transit car #505, and of course, your donations are tax deductible.

Thanks, and Happy Holidays!
