The 1100 series were worked
extremely hard while at PAT but they lasted into the mid 1980's. Around 1982, some of the
1100 series were sent out to be rebuilt and both of our coaches were among them. The
rebuild allowed the 1100's to continue on in operation into the mid 1990's. 1120 &
1129 were last in service in 1995.

The rebuilding process
included a newly rebuilt engine, new body panels, new electrical setup and some minor
appearance changes, primarily the rubber bumpers that replaced the original chrome
bumpers. The coaches that were rebuilt had some problems which resulted in some
transmission problems, electrical problems and a general lack of power.
Both of our coaches are in
relatively decent shape and are operational but do need some work to make them road worthy
again. Plans are to have 1120 remain in the rebuilt condition and 1129 taken back to the
original 1966 appearance. Work has started on taking 1129 back to original with the newer
rubber bumpers being replaced with the correct metal bumpers
