- Jul 8, 2012Gentlemen,
The tool house in the MR issue is the one at Broadalbin, south of 2nd Avenue. It was similar but unlike any of the others in that it had a large loft. Note the window placement, vis-a-vis the Mayfield and Fonda tool houses, which were identical to one another having small lofts. On the electric division there were five more of the same design: Gloversville electric yard, Johnstown near Glebe Street, Tribes Hill Upper, Cranesville and Tower Nine near Scotia. The Gloversville TH of later years was brought to its location near Pine street after the valuation (1928) possibly from Mayfield or one of the electric division buildings. Built dates are: Fonda 1913; Mayfield, 1914; Broadalbin 1907; G'ville, J'town and Tribes Hill 1904; Cranesviulle 1906; Tower Nine 1923?.
There is/was also one of these buildings, identical to Glovesrville at Willsboro on the D&H.

Subject: Re: [FJGRailroad] Re: Kit Ideas?Hi Jerry,
I have it as 1928-7 but they might be the same structure or at least the
same general design. There was also one at the east end of the Fonda
yard, one just at the north side of the Route 5 crossing, also one in
Broadalbin. Back in the late 70s there were two on the north west side
of the DeWitt yard across from the tower, they appear to have been a
standard NYC plan with variations.
