- Feb 15, 2004Hello. I am a new member on this list. Currently live in Green Bay
Packer country, but a transplant from the heart of FJ&G RR country
north- Northville/Town of Northampton. Thirty years our family had
I have met Mr. DiCarlo electronically by happenstance and proceeded
to overfloweth his mailbox with midwestern and D&H trains.
( Hi Gino !)
I'll behave here, and see I have a lot to learn, and something to
contribute. A couple of notes. Parents purchased NYS property in 1965
or so. I was a real young tyke. However, I do remember seeing
Gloversville and Johnstown operations, and warehouses along 30-30A
area. I remember the Alco's, but not ironically the RS units of D&O.
I remember the green PC boxcars, ironically, many of the St. Lawrence
car come through my hometown here daily from the Escanaba and Lake
Superior RR. I still have many friends their in Northville and
Gloversville, and will always call it a second home.
I know of the structures in the Northville area ( what little is
left ) and caught many a walleye along and near the ROW by what was
the (famous yet replaced blue bridge).
I'll hunt up some FJ&G as well as Sacandaga area photos. I hope they
won't be too redundant.
Sad to hear about,condolences to family and friends of Mr. Hart. I
have his book, signed and did meet him once.
