Re: [FJGRailroad] FJ&G photo
Likely the 1946 excursion, taken at Fonda or Broadalbin. You can identify
the location by the background.
After the diesels appeared she was pretty much put away. In September 1948
she was fired up again and used for a while to Broadalbin and also to Fonda
with a baggage car. There are photos hwich appear to be of this time period
which may be the last time No. 9 saw active duty.
