Photo of before the Lowell trolleys
before the Lowell trolleys

When the National Park Service began offering train rides at the Lowell National Historical Park in 1980, it initially used this unusual wooden gas-powered railcar borrowed from the Strasburg Railroad. Built for Pennsylvania's Lancaster, Oxford & Southern RR in 1915, it later worked for the Grasse River RR in upstate New York before winding up at Strasburg, where it runs today. (see https://www.strasburgrailroad.com/ride/cars/l-o-s-self-propelled-motor-car/ ) The replica streetcars took over in Lowell for the 1984 season.
