Fans of The Baltimore Streetcar Museum

Fans of The Baltimore Streetcar Museum The Fans of The Baltimore Streetcar Museum is run by me, Logan Tracy. I am a teen who has been going to The Baltimore Streetcar museum since I could walk.

I started this page to spread the word about the museum with updates, events and pictures. At times, I will also share events from other organizations and museums. If you would take the time to share a update, picture or event I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Mission: I would like to help bring more visitors to the museum

Harry and I went to see Rob at RMS for Public Service 26 last night. He is doing a fantastic job with the body work of the car. Top is done on the operators side, and he is currently working on the door side. The back middle of the car has a area with bad dents, one is almost completely through the roof.

A special thank you to Rob for letting me film him while he worked on a area of the car.

Giving Tuesday was started in 2011 to help non-profit organizations. As most of you know, The Baltimore Streetcar Museum has not opened this year due to Covid. Even if the museum could open, Falls Road is under construction and parking is limited. While the museum is not struggling, there has also been no events to raise money this year. My fundraiser was going to raise money for United Brill car 3828. I hope you will consider making a donation. Thank you.

NJT/PSCT #26 has received its last touch up body work to smooth it out before painting. The rub rail has also been installed with a minor change at the back end of the car to keep it off the body to prevent future rust.

The exterior of #26 is nearly finished and ready for painting. The new headlight fixture has been installed, new metal smoothed down and primed. A test white coat of paint was applied to the windshield area to allow them to better adjust the body putty. This will allow them to have a better looking smooth fix of the new windshields. They rubber for the floor has always started being cut to be installed.

SEPTA PCC III 2332 has received some undercoating where the new metal has been installed. PCC III 2328 is still having some metal work performed on the front floor. Woodland is doing an excellent job on the start of these two cars.

NJT/PSCT 26 has its bulleyes lights installes but not wired. We will rewire/reconnect each fixture after the car returns to Baltimore. Unlike a Philly car, the light strings alternate per fixture instead of a left and right string. All the touch up painting is done. The windows now have the cranks installed! The next thing to do is put the new rubber floor in.

If you would like to donate to help bring the car back to BSM please send a check to

After working on PCC 2168, PCC 7407 and C-145 on September 26, 2020 we operated the streetcars for a couple of trip.
A look back at most of the running roster.
I guess you guys have seen this pamphlet:
We don't usually think of fire-boats to necessarily be related to streetcar operation. At the rail-head facilities such as the Port of Baltimore, however, there is no denying that a railroad's pier-side infrastructure is vital for revenue shipments. Streetcars were vital for moving workers to and from these yards. It is on this account that I ask those who are willing and able to support the efforts of the Baltimore & Chesapeake Steamboat Company to help save a very special fire-boat, MAYOR THOMAS D'ALESANDRO, JR. For many years, she protected Baltimore-based business interests along the shores of the Patapsco and Chesapeake Bay. Help bring TOMMY home. Click here for details.
