Back in 1996, the original Jamestown Street Railway Trolley Car #93 was pulled from the woods of Dewittville, NY
An edowment fund was set up with the CHAUTAUQUA REGION COMMUNITY FOUNDATION for restoring and preserving Trolley Car #93.
For many years we have promoted the project and built the fund up to ~ $ 18K.
Lee Harkness, General Manager with the Gateway Train Station, invited us to bring #93 to the station and work to actually start the restoration.
December 2013 #93 was moved to the station.
National Train Day 2014 first time #93 was available for view by the general public. Jim Mitchener of Falconer, NY (now our restoration lead) makes first contact about working on the restoration.
June 2014, restoration starts.
