      I may be a few days late in promulgating this announcement, but it is an anniversary worth noting.

      Precisely twenty-five years ago, in October (and possibly into November) of 1988, the last flanged wheels left the Glove Cities.  The final FJG/LASB boxcars from the Delaware Otsego era were hauled to scrap by a crew from Rome Locomotive Works.  A Trackmobile was the power.  

      The string of boxcars sat in the Fonda Yard for a month or two before they were towed to scrap.  

      Hard to believe it was so long ago.
