RE: [FJGRailroad] Re: Great Shot
- At this time the locomotives were still being locked up at night in the
paint shop. This is a beautiful morning shot; look at the frost on the
ties. I have to eat some words about how nice the FJ&G kept their locos..
The lady is showing her 27 years, and the rags on the running board!! Still
almost brings a tear. Not just for the FJ&G but for those years and the
I can't remember the year but after DO took over they started leaving it out
on occasion and a thief grabbed at least one of one locomotive's builder's
plate. After that the loose and not so loose items were removed. I recall
that the remining builder's plates were kept on the floor of the loco.
Mark, were you there when this transpired? Did it happen in Gloversville or
when the loco was down on the Richfield Springs line. Was it the 20 or the
21's plate that was stolen? Any idea where the survivors went?
