Here's a picture of CTM's car #840 back in it's heyday. On the back of the photo there is some writing I can't quite make out, but I think it says "840 in Branford".
Another interesting fact about 840 is that she was the last open car in service in the U.S.
Car #840 is currently in CTM's shop for some damage repair. Overall the car runs fine, just needs some capentry work to both of end sections, some paint on the front panels, and maybe a few minor repairs here and there. Hopefully the car will see some service in the 2005 season.
