- Iwas over there Wednesday afternoon and drove in hoping the gate was open
and I could get inside to see if the trolley stop signs were still up in the
rafters, The gate was closed so I turned around in the employment office
parking lot and never noticed that the building was gone. Darn.

- Maybe when those firebugs get out of jail, they can go and torch the
Sacandaga and Broadalbin Depots!!! I saw a story about the arsons on Fox23

Are you still on this list John, and could you tell us a little about what
- Does anyone have any recent pictures of the Trolley Barn? Of course before
the fire? The picture of it burning in the Leader is eerie! You can see
the shape of the building, but it is totally engulfed in flames. I guess
the fire department was worried about the bridge so they stood there and
watched it burn untill they got word that the bridge would support their
fire vehicles. Thank God no one was inside!
