Re: [FJGRailroad] FJG rolling stock still in action
- The boxcars on the CACV were left there before Delaware Otsego closed the
CACV, and are not the cars that came off the FJ&G in the fall of 1988. The
cars on the CACV have been stranded there for years and are just again being
used again as the Leatherstocking Chapter, NRHS re-opens the CACV.
