            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?

            Message 5 of 9 , Sep 23, 2004
              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
