It’s that time of year again to replace the calendar on the wall and there are many photos worth sharing from the 2017 Western Pennsylvania Trolley Calendar I just took down.  Here are 3 photos showing West Penn Railways trolleys including the captions.

Happy New Year, 

Bill

And here’s a few more photos from the 2017 Western Pennsylvania Trolley Calendar.  These are PCC’s taken at different locations around Pittsburgh during the PAT era.

The 2018 edition of the Western Pennsylvania Trolley Calendar is on my wall now with more photos of trolleys around Pittsburgh, Johnstown and the West Penn Railways system.  The 2018 calendar is available from the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum.

Brian-was that a mining trolley  ??  Trolleys were good-faster, cleaner, and convenient but the down side was they sure jammed the city streets during rush hours. nothing could move. I remember that was a big selling point for buses but they were no better.  I think i read in Pgh. there were crews that had to clean up 10-15 tons of horse manure every night !!  Talk about pollution.
