The Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum is asking for the public's help to restore Rochester Subway Car 60.

It's the last surviving car from the Rochester subway fleet.  It's a 1916 trolley car that first went into service in 1938 and ran until the subway was shut down in 1956.

Click on the audio link above to hear museum trustee Otto Vondrak talk about what they have planned for Car 60 and where it's been for the past 58 years.
