No one owns it, but a private individual has the rights to remove it. I'm not giving that persons name. I would appreciate it if you stop making assumptions and throwing stones at the organization I am part of. That is my last word on that subject.

No worries, I won't lock it. I've laid back from locking topics unless it really gets out of hand. Which means the arguments continue after I post to cut it out.

P.s. topic moderated. As I've noted in the past, museums, tourist railroads, preservation, all hot button topics with lots of opinions. I like the passion, but leave the score settling out of it.

Thank you for the clarifications that followed, let's move on.

Always feel free to use the report feature, and we'll take a look. I happened to find it because I've posted here in the past.

I'm thinking no.

Someone once opined that it would be easier to move those pieces out on a barge than to do anything else.

Last time I heard, the group that now owns them was still trying to raise money for the move.

They've been trying for what - 20 years now? I've said it before and I'll say it again - the only way those engines are leaving Glenmont is in pieces in the back of a truck to the scrap yard. If anyone tries to develop that land - the owner will likely scrap them regardless of "ownership".

No, they change hands every few years as each group tries to get them out then throws in the towel.

I see the stuff in Colonie hasn't moved. I thought the RS3 was supposed to be shipped somewhere as well the NYC budd car?

Then who is the group? For those of us who came in late on this story, it's hard to follow (or even possibly donate) to a group with a mission if everyone constantly speculates or claims to know but won't mention names.

Is some simple transparency too much to ask for?

Sorry if I'm ticking anyone off here, but I've know about this stuff for years and I'll be damned if I even know who lays legal claim to it!

The four locomotives located in Glenmont are owned by the Danbury Railway Museum. The four passenger cars also located there are all privately owned.
