There are a few ex-LIRR C1 and P72 coaches for sale on Ozark Mountain Railcar. Does anyone know if they could possibly be bought and brought back to Long Island?

Please get that God-awful MTA paint off it, and with make it an LIRR coach in gray, or better still, a B&M coach in original maroon. Other than that, I appreciate your work on stabilizing these pieces of rolling stock. Short handed, it's about all on can do.Yes, this year (assuming the world re-opens) we plan on focusing on the B&M coach. We just received a $4,000 grant from the NRHS for metalwork, paint and windows to help restore the car back to it's original minuteman red.
