I have company records of cars handled from Fort Johnson to what we remember
as the Parkhurst Mill on Harrison Street on the Back line as well as over to
Amsterdam - must have been one of the companies on the west end. They also
hauled the coal to Tribes Hill and Johnstown. Why they did the long haul to
Johnstown is probably because it is six of one half dozen of another. They
ran the engine down to Fort Johnson, may as well handle a car or two in the
Wish I could put my hand on those papers. Gino, didn't I put something on
here many months ago with car initials and numbers and dates?
