I still keep shaking my head over all that was and is now lost.

I'll probably keep shaking my head until my brain turns to sludge.

I'll trade my iPhone and the Internet for a ride on car 663.  Thanks for sharing a glimpse in time.

Seashore Trolley Museum has 615 from the same series as 663 in regular service (as 303, its Winchester Avenue Railway number).  Ride it any time the sun is shining.

Good response, RC, thanks.  Also 1414 at Brandford, lettered for Connecticut Co., but the tendency is to use B&QT-BMT 4573 Convertable in summer configuration.

838 is also at Seashore.  Operable but not in regular use this summer due to reduction in visitor numbers.  There are two others which need a bit of work.
