After years of hard work from our car department, we are proud to announce that Chicago Aurora and Elgin car 458 has entered service at the museum! The car certainly has a rich history, and now we can demonstrate it to the public.
On Saturday we held a dedication ceremony to commemorate the event.
First we have Joe and Fred 14 years ago, when we first acquired the car
Here they are now showing off the fruits of their efforts
Fred motored every passenger run for the dedication smiling the whole way, eager to show off his work
We also had many excited members attending the ceremony, eager to see our latest addition to our pool of running cars.
Thank you to everyone who attended the dedication, and thank you especially to the car department for all the time and labor they put into restoring this car. We look forward to many years providing rides to visitors on car 458.
