      The boxcars on the CACV were left there before Delaware Otsego closed the
      CACV, and are not the cars that came off the FJ&G in the fall of 1988. The
      cars on the CACV have been stranded there for years and are just again being
      used again as the Leatherstocking Chapter, NRHS re-opens the CACV.
