The Boston Street Railway Association, for some time an informal group of railway enthusiasts in the Boston area, was formally incorporated in 1959 to preserve on e of the last standard cars of the Boston Elevated Railway. In 1960 the Publications Department was organized to make available to the general public some information on the many street railways and steam railroads in New England, and to provide the Association with a source of revenue for its projects.
In 1959, the Association purchased Type Five #5706 from the Metropolitan Transit Authority. One of the last nine standard cars on the system, 5706, built by Brill in 1924, was assigned to the Arborway Division for a number of years, and was last used on the Northeastern University-Park Street Subway shuttle route. In 1961 the vehicle was moved to the Branford Electric Railway Museum in East Haven, Conn. The Car is presently undergoing exhaustive restoration, and all Association revenues are used for this purpose.
