Vintage Fire Trucks & Trolleys

Today is the vintage fire truck show at the Connecticut Trolley Museum in East Windsor/Warehouse Point, CT. Kelly has been volunteering at the museum since she was 21-years old. Her main focus has been working in the restoration barns, restoring, renovating, and repairing the museum's collection of vintage trolley cars.

Kelly also has a passion for brass era automobiles, antique and vintage cars through the 1930's and vintage trucks and fire trucks. Today is right up her alley. She was up early and out of the house by eight o'clock to head to the museum where she's volunteering as a trolley motorman, having earned her certifications to operate 7 of their trolleys so far.

I've been running errands and catching up on housework today, but following the Vintage Fire Truck Day on facebook through periodic photo updates posted by the museum. It looks like there's quite a crowd there. One truck had to leave to go to a call but soon returned as it was a false alarm.

I can't wait to see her pictures when she comes home this evening.
