The collection was auctioned off a number of years ago and scattered all over the place. As mentioned before the Maine Narrow gauge museum got some of the rolling stock, as well as a museum in NH that closed down a year or so ago. The museum in NH sold off their portion of the collection, and from seeing ads on Craigslist , they're trying to sell off locomotive #8, as well as a SRRL boxcar, with no success.
Some of the items still show up at the Brimfield antique shows, as well as on EBAY. At the last Brimfield antiques show, I met an attorney who said there were people who had loaned items to Edaville years ago, and were actively looking to get them back. Good luck with that "chase" I told him.
