The New York Museum of Transportation took a large step in the restoration of Rochester streetcar #437. The car body was recently craned off its storage cribbing on to cribbing above a new set of trolley trucks on live rail!

Rochester 437 sits on one of its new trucks while the other end sits on cribbing until some modifications can be made to fit the new trucks which are representative of what 437 had in service, but not exact replacements.

Here we can see the truck behind the cribbing. The trucks are complete with traction motors and brake rigging.

This was 437 just after delivery to the NYMT in 1997.
