Gerry, Leo, et al,
Thank you for clarifying the names I did know that but somehow it did not translate to the posting. As someone who lives on the old Worcester and Suburban RoW, I am very interested in this car. It represents the last car that was used in Worcester, excluding WCSR shop motor 038, that exists at least domestically. The problem is that none of the local Museums have time and resources to schedule a re-building of this scale. As was stated before, Seashore has other priorities, I volunteer at CTM, we have our hands full with a very large docket of cars being worked on. The car being the last of its kind in from the only real interurban that ran in Massachusetts should have a brighter future. Besides the ant problems, was there any structural damage done while it was used off the rails? Is it sitting on the correct trucks or just serviceable ones? Also does anyone know what the color scheme was for the car? Or the sister freight service cars?
Is there any grant/ ISTEA-21 monies that could be found for this car? Are there any problems with the car getting money from Massachusetts, but being located in Maine? Would it be a candidate to run in Lowell? Being a native car has its advantages, I hope.
Thanks for listening,
