Yesterday, I got to go all the way out to Halton Hills Ontario where I got to go back to the Halton County Radial Museum with my dad! Now I had my lynard last year but I did not apparently blog about it for some strange reason that wasn't on the list of blogs as I did a search for it and nothing came up but the 2017 so makes me wonder if we actually went last year and I am pretty much sure we did but I must of not taken any notes and I didn't post whatsoever so it has been 2 years now now. Anyways we got stuck in some major traffic jams so it took us definitely longer to get there and less to spend as I felt like there was a bit more of a rush this year at the Streetcar Museum but that could just be me honestly. Anyways we jumped on the 4600 which was under a repaint job and honestly I am excited to see it all newly repainted 4600, a PCC which was originally a 4500 when it ran for the TTC. We did switch to the 2894 a Peter Witt Streetcar that ran in 1923 to go all the way back
Then we got back grabbed some lunch and also we looked at the shop where they were repairing Car 4 a London and Port Stanley which is under repairs currently. Also 217 still being worked on in the shop along with now 4611 which had no wheels on whatsoever so it is being worked on so it is definitely nice to see vehicles being worked and and potentially going to be running along the line at the Halton County Radial Museum in the very nearby future. Then we took the 8 back down the line and back before looking in the barns and before one last trip down the line and our way back home.
So we looked in the barns, the streetcars that are no longer in service or would have to be towed out to be used as there is no wires that is above that goes to the barn all the way to the main line as that area does not have the proper electric lines right now. This also includes 1326, 55, 7 Chicago Train, Subways 5300, 5301, Subways 5098 and 5099. Also our local work train as you guys didn't know we once here had a railway here with streetcars way back into the day. There are many other trains like the Montreal train sitting there, 23. But that was behind and there is the original part of the barn that was there before Barn 4 and it had PCC Streetcar 4000 which is definitely one of my favorites of all times along with 327 and several of them that have to be repaired but love how they are going to start fixing them up slowly but surely! Finally I also asked about the CLRV streetcars that is now slowly retiring and that they are getting some streetcars of theirs soon. Overall the day was a fun day and next weekend I am going to have ton of content for you guys so be sure to stay tuned so I will see you on tomorrow's blog post.
