It's kind of messy, but 2168 ventured out for the first
time yesterday looking like it needed just one more color. The move
outside was part of a major car shuffling that saw 7303 go inside for the
first time and sweeper C-145 run for the first time on its' new broad
gauge trucks.2168 had been reguaged a few weeks ago. Full body
repairs and a complete repainting are being undertaken at this time under
the sponsorship of the Friends of Philadelphia Trolleys, who would
love to have you join if you aren't already a member.
