[PHOTOS] LIRR MP-54 #4153 At CT Trolley Museum

Posted by Bill Newkirk on Sun Mar 17 10:58:26 2019

The CT Trolley Museum brought this gem out for us as we were a bus charter group from NYC.
I was told they normally did not run this car because of electrical consumption.
For those who never rode these cars I can describe the bull & pinion gearing sound as close to our "arnines.
Brake release sounded like the Lackawanna MU's and Reading "Blueliners".
