Here are some photos taken of Atlantic City Transit trolleys. The first, taken while still in service is a very rare Brilliner.

Brilliner 270 enroute to Inlet on August 10, 1955:


Conventional car 250 at St. George, Staten Island, NY, on May 17, 1956, museum bound:


Another shot of 250 at St. George:


Next week, Bi-State Transit, St. Louis, MO, in 1964.

If you blow up the picture, it looks like 1-76 for a new date

Bob .. can you check the date on the back of that picture?

Hehe, too late - I just ordered one.  8)

Not much of a stretch as my main "era" is limited to the narrowly defined 1965-1975.

O.K., they me clarify the photo.  I visited this facility several times while stationed in Charleston, SC and the photo was taken in either Feb or Mar of 76.  It got mixed in with my earlier shots.  Sorry for any confusion.  It is a great looking gon.

Also here's the diesel I worked on while in Charleston:

Gotta love those days before the EPA started snooping around and when diesel cost less than ice water.  Look at that fuel rack!  Hoses dribbling black gold all over the ground!  What nostalgia!!


That's the look I was shooting for with my fuel rack.

Nice Horse shots Ed.  Every one of them.  Well done.

The post about the freight car that everybody has photographed got me to thinking about locos I've taken photos of several years apart.  Here's one, T6 #17 in the  lead, working the the Wheeling puller in Cleveland.



Same loco awaiting disposition a few years later.



Here's a weathering challenge.  You can't keep a good road down!

That doesn't look like much of a "winter storm".   ::) ;)
