10994RE: [FJGRailroad] Re: Cushing Model 40
- Apr 7, 2005It can likely be had for the price of a good snowmobile. When the Conway
Scenic purchased No. 15, a 44 tonner, from the Maine Central a corporation
was set up, shares sold to raise the funds and the rest is history. It
might look good trimmed up in traction orange.
The city of Gloversville might be amenable to replacing a track between
South Main St and West Spring on which an operation similar to Rich's
Syracuse train could bring shoppers from the south end to the city center.
The corporation could then buy up a bushel bag of tokens and issue them for
transportation. Is anyone who actually lives in Gloversville or Johnstown
on this list? The corporation would need a caretaker and business manager.
