Hi,

I received a couple of good photos of the Inlet, NY, caboose off-line.

It certainly looks correct for an ex-ATSF 2200 series and GTW 79186 caboose!

Thanks, Roger

The RPO associated with Inlet was actually operated on a steamboat that ran between Inlet and Old Forge on the Fulton Chain of Lakes. The RPO cancellation was always "TR. 1". :-) As stated above, there never was any kind of railroad at Inlet.

I have one or two pictures of the Inlet caboose. How in the world do I attach them here?

Regarding RPO postmark on the Fulton Chain mailboat to Inlet, there were four postmarks differing as follows:

TR1 Old Forge Inlet morning trip
TR2 Inlet Old Forge morning trip
TR3 Old Forge INlet afternoon trip
TR4 Inlet Old Forge afternoon trip

Talk about necroposting! This thread has been dead and buried for over 11 years but I'll exhume it to post a pic. On the previous page there was discussion of the AFSF cabooses sold to GTW and repainted. At that time I didn't have a scanner, but now here's a shot of ATSF 1503 at Port Huron MI 7-19-1970, stripped and waiting for sandblasting and painting. It became GTW 75024 according to Roger. I have roster shots of the other 4 mentioned if needed. Just in case anybody cars all these years later! :wink:
