In recent years , this Society has undertaken to gather a collection of electric railway equipment to illustrate the many developments that marked the rise and decline of this fabulous but short-lived industry. As a part of this program, we have acquired a group of cars from Boston's Metropolitan Transit Authority representing an almost complete sequence of car types from a single large system. We had several Boston cars, and when it became clear that most of the remaining old equipment on the MTA would soon be retired, we undertook to preserve seven more cars, which, with those we already had, would form a living record of local streetcar evolution.
