SOOOoooooo..... lets see what else we have in the archives..Lets see there
are quite a few tokens: the Binghamton Railway Company, the International
Railway in Buffalo, the Connecticut Company the Hudson Transportation
Company, Lehigh valley Transit, Kingston City Transportation Company, United
Traction (does anybody know where that is ?) Rochester Transit, Poughkeepsie
& Wappingers Falls Railway Company
NYSE&G Corp, FJ&G and of course NYCTA.
I have a United Traction token that I assume I must have gotten in Johnstown. Gino mentioned that company in Albany so maybe it was for an old bus company that used to run painted in the FJ&G colors (cream & orange) Dave

And with that, while rummaging around the archives, I found a copy of PC RAILROADER July-August 1975. On page 4 there is a photo of FJG 153998 with the following caption, "The Fonda, Johnstown & Gloversville located off the Mohawk Division in Amsterdam, New York acquired 100 40' and 138 50' box cars from Penn Central. photo by the editor - Joe Klapkowski
I know the caption is inaccurate. I did not write it. This was way before the days of the internet and common information. To have a by- line back then at the ripe old age of 15 was, well, pretty cool.
