Some former CSR vehicles have been preserved in museums. One example is car 2227, built in 1919 by the Cincinnati Car Company, at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum. That museum acquired car 2227 from the Lake Shore Electric Railway (another museum) in 2009 and restored it, unveiling the restored car in 2013.
