Portions of Coach 150 are exposed after wind tore the tarp.

After two years of inclement weather and direct sunlight, tears have developed in the tarp protecting #150. In response to the tarp damage, society member Reuben Moss has prepared a study of the car’s condition.  The tear will be covered by a temporary tarp in January as the society develops a long-term plan for preservation and maintenance.

#150 is a suburban coach which served on the H&F Railway in the Hagerstown area from 1923 to 1938.  It is now privately owned , with maintenance assistance provided by members of the HFRHS.
