The late Kinsley Goodrich of Dalton, Mass was a trolley-fan who loved to model the Berkshire Street Railway. He also visited the UTC and SRC. He painted  UTC's Number 301. The uniqueness of this car makes it popular across the board with fans.

Busses like this one replaced the trolleys in Albany.  The United Traction Company managed to operate til 1971 when The Capital District Transportation Authority was created.  Bus 721 is seen here on Pearl Street near the Palace Theater.
