It is December 12, 2005, and Perley Thomas car 930, decorated for the Christmas holidays, is ready to be towed to Canal Street.  However, the first tow bar tried was too short, and broke as the car was leaving the barn.  A longer tow bar was then used with the Dodge Ram truck, and this was successful.  The bottom picture shows car 930 on Canal Street at St. Charles, with its trolley pole taking power for the first time since the hurricane.  The route sign still reads St. Charles, but the car is on the Canal line tracks.
