HCRY 1999 1500


At the end of the first day, Patrick Lavallee gave me some training on how to operate a streetcar. He called it 'membership recruitment', and he knew how to get me interested. I signed up the next week. While I was visiting to receive training on how to be a conductor and (later) a driver, I brought along my camera and caught some interesting moves. In this shot, CTA 48 is being used to pull TRC #55 from its bay in Number 3 carhouse. To power CTA 48, volunteers used a 'snake'; basically a cord connecting the power input with the overhead wire.
