Trolley Adopt-a-Seat Program – Take A Seat . . . Please!

The National Museum of Transportation Trolley Volunteers are currently refurbishing our Philadelphia Transit Company #2740. This was the first car that the Trolley Volunteers put into service at the Museum in 1998. The seats of this trolley were last refurbished by SEPTA, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, in 1984.

The seats, as received from SEPTA in 1995, were blue with red trim. Our goal is to restore the seats back to the original brown color. The cost to reupholster a double seat is $199.00, and a single seat is $149.00.

Will you Adopt-a-Seat for renovation?
