The ceiling of 355

#355 is one of my most favorite car in appearance. it has been done so nicely. There has been a lot of good hard work involved into restoring this one. Once it is running it will probably be one of the most popular cars they run.

now for some history:
Car #355 was built in 1902 by J.G. Brill. It operated on the Fairhaven and Westville RR until that line was bought by the Connecticut Company in 1910. #355 was then re-numbered to Connecticut co. #663 and was moved to the New Haven division. Then in 1948 it was sold to CTM.
While being restored it was re-numbered back to #355 because it was more original for the car.
