- Thanks for the identification of the trolleys I saw on the flatcar in Chicago. I had always remembered that they were on their way to Seattle but Portland is probably right. Same direction.Rogers FinchOn Sat, 07 Jul 2001 16:21:23 -0000 "Walt Danylak" <waltdanylak@...> writes:--- In FJGRailroad@y..., ka2hsu@j... wrote:

Glad to have aboard!
The bullets were shipped in 1939, at least from Gloversville. I think
they were first returned to Brill for an overhaul, but I'm not sure
about that. Regardless, it shouldn't have taken 5 years to overhaul
Depending on how flat cars you saw, it might have been the #176 &
#177 going to Portland. I'm not sure just what date these cars were
shipped, but I think it was some time in the 1940's.
Please feel free to share any of your boyhood stories about the FJ&G
with the group. If you have any questions concerning the FJ&G or
Fulton County in general, don't be afraid to ask. I can't guarantee
you we'll always have an answer, but we'll try our best.
Once again, glad to have you with us.
