Staff Comment.  The Historic Landmarks Commission has voted to spend up to $30,000 to secure a generator and associated materials to power Charlotte Streetcar 85, which is currently leased to the North Carolina Transportation Museum.  The Museum is hoping to have Streetcar 85 operational by the end of 2018.  Lakewood Trolley is also wanting to have Streetcar 85 returned to Charlotte.
