POTTSTOWN, Pa. - Train cars that have been in service for about 100 years will get new life on the Colebrookdale Railroad.
Two heavyweight passenger coaches arrived in Pottstown, Montgomery County, on Monday. They were built in the 1920s.
The plan is to restore the roofs, floors, seats and windows and put the cars back in service.
"These cars were long-distance deluxe passenger coaches. They were in both long-distance train service and later in commuter service on the Canadian National Railway. They're built to plans very similar to plans used by many American railroads, so they'll be right at home here on the Colebrookdale," said Nathaniel Guest, president, Colebrookdale Preservation Trust.
The railroad covers a nine-mile stretch between Boyertown, Berks County, and Pottstown.
