Some more photos of the Philadelphia Suburban Transportation Co. trolley fleet in the 1950s:

Heavyweights 65 & 71, beside the Llanerch carbarn, saved for snowy days:


The storage yard for rush hour and bad weather cars at Llanerch:


PSTC Lightweight interurban 78, my favorite type of PSTC car. At the 69th St. Terminal storage yard.


More next week.

My favorite caboose shot.  Certainly not for the striking composition or excellent technique but, for me anyway, why switching to modeling the caboose-less era is a non-starter.  ;)

All the years I've had that photo and didn't realize that the ice breaker was in it!

I climbed up a bunch of safety caged ladders today. I did ask permission at the office to take photos though. They didn't ask where I would take them from :D

Here is one from ground level:

I was wondering the same thing RE: climbing the sand tower.  But, knowing Y'town as I do, there are so many unauthorized (not to mention illegal) activities going down around town, a tower climbing excursion is WAY down on the list of things to be concerned about.   ;D  And the snow is gone.  And it's sunny!  Spring finally underway in da Valley I hope.  Great photos Chris.  Thanks for posting them.
