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. If you’d like to help with the costs of transporting the pieces and of the construction of the canopy to be placed over the tank car, donations can be sent care of JillMoser at 914 Skyview Drive, Milton PA 17847, with “tank car” in the memo. Thank you to the Standard Journal for highlighting this acquisition in the article found below.
A big thank you to Bart Reichards who recently donated several different items to the historical society including a large collection of ACF ephemera – which we will have on display through our November 7 th Open House.
