East Troy Electric No. 64

East Troy Electric 64 was originally built in Philadelphia by Brill for the Philadelphia & Western in 1927. Originally P&W 64, later renumbered to SEPTA 164, and used in third rail de-icing service in the 1980's. The car was bought and restored by the East Troy Electric Railroad in 1993. In 2010 the car was traded to the Electric City Trolley Museum in Scranton in exchange for three Cleveland PCC cars from Trollyville USA in 2010. Below two views of East Troy Electric 64 at the Cedar Avenue car barn, from Saturday, September 28, 2013.

Park Theatre

The Park Theatre at 433-435 Prescott Avenue. Don't have much info on this theatre, it looks like it opened sometime in the 1930's and didn't stay in operation too long.

Petersburg Memorial Cemetery

The Petersburg Memorial Cemetery at 962 Paul Avenue in Scranton was established in 1853 and hasn't been used in decades. Very little maintenance is done here, parts are very overgrown, and a portion near the back is pretty much inaccessible. The iron fence across the front is heavily damaged, as is a number of grave markers near the entrance. Below are some photos from September 15, 2013.
More detailed information on the cemetery can be found here:
