Thanks Gino for the idea
- I'm a Gloversville native but I've been in Michigan 30 years. Unfortunately
I no longer have any relatives in my hometown but I still have a close attachment.
This year is my 40th GHS reunion and I am looking forward to coming to that event. My parents
had a cottage in Sacandaga Park. I spent a lot of time at the depot while it was still
an FJ&G property. I remember the orange auto stages that took the place of the
train but still carried mail and passengers into the mid fifties. I went to
Kingboro school half way through the 4th grade when Boulevard School opened.
Our class used to walk to Darling field to use the playground equipment once
in a while. When we crossed the FJ&G tracks on Kingsboro Ave, I was always
hopeful to see a train. The little station was still there but it had been closed
and us kids kept away because of the wasps. I remember #30 and one or two coal
hoppers being spotted at the coal company right at the crossing.
