- Aug 24 11:23 AMThe only 'Rail City' I know of was quite a distance from Albany.....Sandy Pond on Lake Ontario nearer to Syracuse. By the '80s it was basically defunct and within the last decade the inventory (read relics) were auctioned off. I don't remember any FJ&G caboose as being part of the collection.Gordon D.----- Original Message -----From: Paul CharlandSent: Wednesday, August 24, 2011 2:03 PMSubject: Re: [FJGRailroad] Caboose No. 2
Years ago I called the museum in Shelburne one time when I was heading
to Rutland. They told me back then that the caboose had been moved to
"Rail City" just outside Albany.. would have been mid '80s. When I
first got on the internet back in 1998ish I liked for Rail City and only
found that they had closed years earlier with no indication of what
happened to their collection.
