prescient enough to see the end was near and had time (and money) enough to
make the pilgrimage to Gloversville, document the condition of many of the
cars shoved away to decay. Some photos taken after the shut down show them
in all sorts of disrepair and dismantling. Then there are those sorry
photos of the parades to Broadalbin Junction; their last movement to
Similarly the old coaches were shoved down on the track just west of the
main almost to the intersection of Broad and Main where they sat waiting
movement to the junction. I haven't seen many photos of cars on the tracks
south of Pine Street. The original Fulton County coal company building was
at the junction of Broad and S. Main until the FJ&G built the new coal house
in 1901 and put the electric track through. There were two tracks into the
building and one or two storage tracks down there at one time.
