Anyone involved with the NYS Museum of Transportation in Rush, NY?

Post by Benjamin Maggi » Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:20 am

I am building a 1/8 scale model of G&W caboose #8, formerly of the DL&W. I have plans and lots of pictures but have nothing showing the underside. The museum used to have #8 outside but lately I don't see it visible in online pictures of the area. The website says it is undergoing roof repair and not on display.

I will be in town next weekend (6/23) and was hoping to stop by the museum on that Sunday when they are open to get some pictures and measurements. Is there anyone on the forum affiliated with the museum that could help me out with this?

My fall-back option is the old "Gunlocke" caboose (also DL&W) at the Wayland Historical Society, but that is a bit further out of the way and I have no idea if the underside was gutted when it was previously turned into a gun lodge building.

Thanks.
