Since we're on the subject, what would be the next logical step for expansion of the line? There was talk about two years ago of extending a line into the downtown, but after a change of county administration, this idea was lost in the shuffle. Car 5205 has been undergoing a restoration funded by a PennDOt grant, how far along they are I do not know. It only makes sense that with another operational trolley that they have two lines in service as well.
The only new branch that would make sense to me would be a line up to Nay Aug, possibly through the University of Scranton campus, maybe right up the now closed section of Linden St.; this would give an actual destination and make the line more convenient to a host of visitors, including U students. A plan such as this would also be attractive from a cooperative government standpoint, as it would involve county, city, and community interaction in order to achieve the desired goal.
I believe the museum did receive around 250k in funding recently, and a motorman I spoke with speculated that the funds would probably be spent on maintenance, and 'to build a connection to the new terminal,' a point of all things (modern) transportation set to be built off of Lackawanna Avenue. This is good news; if they can secure a spot in the new transportation hub, it will be that much easier to expand the line into the future.
