Event Description
Trolleyology: PCC Car Restorations (SOLD OUT)

**This event is SOLD OUT, but a recording will be available on the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum YouTube channel within a week or so. Thank you!**

Join PTM staff, volunteers, members, and friends of the Museum for our Zoom series, Trolleyology! These programs feature Pennsylvania transit history topics and tales of our collection that you can experience from home. Registration is required but free of charge. Donations are welcome and encouraged. Limited space is available!

Matt Nawn and Harry Donahue will share their experiences managing and participating in PCC car restoration projects at several museums, with a focus on lessons learned that can be helpful to any restoration project. This presentation will cover many features of the restoration of a PCC car, including the carbody, interior, trucks, control system, and finishing details. Matt and Harry will also discuss tips for upkeep and maintenance of these cars once restoration is completed. This presentation should be a good follow-on to the January Trolleyology presentation on the history of PCC cars.

A Question & Answer session and discussion will follow the program.

For the best experience, we recommend downloading Zoom in advance.
