Trolley Restoration Project update: The Jersey Shore Historical Society Board has voted to cancel the trolley restoration project.

It has come to the board’s attention that some necessary and expensive repairs are needed on the Samuel Moss House. The repairs include masonry and roofing work. Since this is the case, the Board felt the need to redirect the funds to the upkeep of the museum building and its artifacts.

This was not an easy decision to make, but the priority and mission of The Jersey Shore Historical Society is to maintain the museum so that the history of Jersey Shore may be kept alive. Our goal is to complete the needed repair work so that the museum can be reopened to the public in 2024.

If you know of anyone or group who would be interested in restoring the trolley, please message this page.

River Valley Transit Authority is requesting the trolley be moved by August 2024.

Interestingly, this car (or what is left of it) is believed to be the only single truck streetcar from Philadelphia still in existence.

"Hello all! We have a former Long Island Rail Road P72 coach that is surplus to our needs. The car is in poor shape cosmetically but IS still movable by rail with a new COT&S (D-22 brake system, last moved in a hospital move with expired brakes in November 2023).
We will be removing the genset (Detroit slant three-cylinder) and fuel tank for reuse on a different car in our collection, but we are looking to dispose of the rest of the coach. We have received some messages from various parties that are interested in purchasing parts (specifically the trucks) if we scrap the car, but if anyone is interested in taking the entire car as-is, we'd rather see it go somewhere in one piece. We'd consider a donation to the right party with the resources and experience to get it moved out of our yard fairly quickly.
The car is located on live rail in Port Jervis, New York. We'd like to have a plan for the car by June 30th, whether it's getting re-homed or we're scrapping it and parting it out. If it's getting re-homed, it can stay on-site beyond June 30th while the new owner gets it ready to move (although we'd ideally like it gone ASAP). If you're interested in the whole car, shoot us an email at
If we don't get any inquiries and develop a plan for the whole car by June 30th, we'll move forward with scrapping, and we'll put out another call for anyone interested in parts before the torches come out."
