Cruising NH Craig's list the other day, I came across one of the transfer buggies. For sale somewhere in the Epsom NH area.

Should have said this earlier, but I believe the 'American Flyer' style lightweight car at Shelburne Falls is ex-BAR.

Thanks for posting that JPB. Informative, I didn't know Coffin was still in business.

On Fawcett St. in Cambridge there are two landlocked, decaying Bluebird-liveried boxcars in the IggY's Bakery parking lot. They sit parallel to the Fitchburg, which is just over the fence. There was an active spur serving Fawcett St. in Cambridge until at least 2001. Around this time I was astonished one afternoon to pull down the road and find a Guilford Geep idling away in the middle of the street w/ boxcar attached. As with most Guilford marginal operations in the Fresh Pond Cambridge area (e.g. Watertown Branch) the tracks were in such a deplorable state that I naturally assumed the Fawcett St. industrial spur to have be long abandoned..

Here's the end of 2017 update on Steamtown's restoration activity on B&M Pacific 3713:

http://www.project3713.com/wp-content/u ... ct3713.pdf

Interestingly, given the original tender body was too rotted to be restored, a new all-welded tender body is to be constructed and "To preserve the visual integrity of the project, replica rivet heads will be welded on in exact locations"!

And there's good swag that can be purchased to help fund the restoration, too.
