      Group,
      I have a photo that shows FJG caboose #2 on a northbound Rutland
      freight at New Haven Vermont. It is the last car in the train
      followed by Rutland caboose #43. Late 1950's.
      Anyone know where #2 was heading?

      Hi Will, I heard it went to the Shelburne Museum just south of Burlington and was there for years. I called there in the early 80s to see if I could measure

        Hi Will,

        I heard it went to the Shelburne Museum just south of Burlington and was
        there for years. I called there in the early '80s to see if I could
        measure it but was told it went to a museum in the Albany NY area years
        before... 'Train Town USA' or something like that, never found the name
        in any Railroad museum listings so never pursued it.

        No. 2 was displayed at the Shelburn Museum in Shelburne VT for a number of years. Rumor has it on the east side of the state today, south of St. Johnsbury in

          Johnsbury in a private collection.

                  I have a photo that shows FJG caboose #2 on a northbound Rutland
                  freight at New Haven Vermont. It is the last car in the train
                  followed by Rutland caboose #43. Late 1950's.
                  Anyone know where #2 was heading?

                    RailCity auctioned off most of its
                    assets (motive power and rolling stock) in
                    an estate auction in the early 1990s.
                    The auction received much publicity in
                    the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper and
                    one of the stories featured much info on ex-
                    FJG #2's sale. As I recall (I didn't save the
                    clipping), the caboose brought far more
                    bidder interest and money than expected.
                    Because the thing was in deplorable condition,
                    railbirds figured it would go for a song. But
                    the bidding was brisk. The story speculated
                    that the unanticipated interest was due to the
                    rarity of an 8-wheel bobber. However, the
                    successful bidder, an unidentified private
                    collector from Connecticut, was quoted as saying
                    he bid so high because he already owned #2's
                    sister unit. Now whether that meant
                    he already had 4-wheel FJG #1, or meant that he
                    already owned some other 8-wheeler which has some
                    construction lineage tied to #2, is an unsolved
                    mystery not explained in the story. My guess?
                    Just like #3 is alive and well in Honesdale, Pa.,
                    I'd bet #2 and #1 are resting well in Conn.
                    RailCity still operates in Northern
                    Oswego County near Sandy Creek. Today, however,
                    its just a museum house and a couple of barns
                    full on momentos. In its heyday in the '70s, it
                    was a full-scale rail-ride themepark.---Andy Fusco
