Milton Car Works Tank Car

The Milton Historical Society recently took possession of a gift from John Gummo of Beech Creek, PA of the restored replica Milton Car Works tank car which used to sit at ACF Industries, as well as a restored railroad baggage car, and worked with the Borough of Milton to select the tank car’s permanent site. The car was delivered in September and placed near the Milton Police Department on Filbert Street. John Gummo restored both pieces to beautiful condition and we thank him for his generosity. They are wonderful additions to the Milton community. Thank you to the Standard Journal for highlighting this acquisition in the article found below.
