Cuba Brill thrill: everybody look at the camera
Author: valmont

A pair of Brill cars somewhere in Cuba on Mar. 23, 1981 ..... by Jim Marcus. Not sure who was with him (if anyone) on this trip, but he sure got a lot of cooperation!
Guess that sign with it's back to us didn't say 'smile' though!

Looks like a great scene to model. Wooden door on the Brill car and all

Here's a sister car from a TUT charter in 2001. By then the Brills were used only in charter service. Regular service was provided by more modern equipment purchased from Spain.

Yes. We also had a tour of the railway workshops at Hershey and the company town.

Sort ot. The Chevy and it's driver showed up on it's own. We asked him to stay until photos were completed.
