Yes, it's the yellow car and yes it's there year round as are the
other cars on display.
- Yeah Gino, I remember t"The Greatest Show on Earth". It also starred
Jimmy Stewart as Buttons the Clown. You're right it was a great
scene (If you like wrecks) when the second section rear ends the
stopped first section.
As in all Cecil B. DeMille movies the sets were lavish, and the cast
was big, and Old CB himself narrated parts of it (As he did with the
Ten Commandements, and the Buccaneer).
Knowin CB's penchant for realism, he might have bought 2 locos and
crashed them on purpose for effect!
- Just happened to see an East bound Mohawk division Circus train
through Nelliston at 11:50 AM. Not close enough to make out the name
on the equipment. Also Avery Van Slyke passed away Saturday, 40 years
on the railroad out of Utica as dispatcher for NYC, PennCentral, and
Conrail. He lived in Palatine Bridge. Charlie
