        The trucks said D&H on them so I would guess that they are not
        original ?

        Assume the flanger was built by the D&H at either Colonie or Oneonta.
        I would guess Oneonta as Colonie was mostly locomotives while Oneonta
        was mostly freight cars. The flanger is a standard D&H design. There
        is, or at least there was, one at Steamtown in Scranton, PA.

        Yes, the ex D&H flanger is still at Scranton. There are identical ex D&H flangers in use on the Battenkill RR and Vermont Ry. CLP also had one, not sure if

                Aaron,

                I've just started making trips to Greenwich to snap shots of the BKRR!
                There is one
                photographic opportunity after another! Their main yards in Greenwich is
                like a trip
                to the past! There's a lot about that line that reminds me of the FJG in
                the 80's.
                The 2 ALCOs they have make me think of 100 and 103...
