MORE TRANSIT PRESERVATION OPPORTUNITIES.

There is still one Columbus streetcar extant, and it could use a little care.  "Old #703 has a rusted frame, rotting wood, and broken windows. The car was built in 1925 by the G.C. Kuhlman Car Company and weighs 36,230 pounds. Streetcars first arrived in Columbus in 1863."

The car has a Go Fund Me page.  The museum it resides at has been thinning its collection to concentrate on more regionally significant rolling stock, something we have noted elsewhere.
