  • Hi Jerry, I have it as 1928-7 but they might be the same structure or at least the same general design. There was also one at the east end of the Fonda yard, one just at the north side of the Route 5 crossing, also one in Broadalbin. Back in the late 70s there were two on the north west side of the DeWitt yard across from the tower, they appear to have been a standard NYC plan with...

  • Just a thought but... how about a kit for the tool shed that appears in the 1979 MR. There were a few of these on the property, also looks like a common NYC design. Paul :-)

  • Hi All, I'm back working on a mid 1970s version of the FJ&G for Microsoft Trainsim and was wondering what tracks might have been removed from the lower Johnstown yard by then... if any. Have removed the tracks from the three coal companies and am also wondering about removing the tracks from the coal company near the State St crossing. Any help would be appreciated. Paul :-)

  • Hi All, This was sent to me by a friend, would appear someone out west may be trying to save three FJ&G Bullet cars: http://www.rypn.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=32911 Paul :-)

  • Hi All, Years ago I called the museum in Shelburne one time when I was heading to Rutland. They told me back then that the caboose had been moved to "Rail City" just outside Albany.. would have been mid '80s. When I first got on the internet back in 1998ish I liked for Rail City and only found that they had closed years earlier with no indication of what happened to their...

  • Hi Gino, The FJ&G line runs from Lark St east to a mile or so beyond the NYC yard. I might extend it west beyond Market St (the bridge across the Mohawk) as the line gets close enough to see again. Really, you can't see much until the tracks turn south after DeGraff St and end up parallel to the NYC yard. Paul :-) On 04/05/2011 12:41 PM, Gino's Railpage wrote: > What about the fJ&g...

  • Hi Gino, Maybe three or four miles total, just enough to make sure long freights spawn out of sight. Think the west end would be Fort Johnston or very close. Have no crossovers in place but you can hop on the north mainline from the west end of the yard and take a ride on it. Paul :-) On 04/05/2011 10:47 AM, Gino's Railpage wrote: > Looks great Paul!

  • Hi All, I've added a few screenshots of from the MSTS ACN route I've been working on. The show cars getting spotted around the huge Shuttleworth Carpet Mill. Paul :-)

  • Hi Paul, OK, so it looks like the 0515 car out of Amsterdam became the 0600 car out of Schenectady. The schedule in the Gordon and Mowers' book might be slightly earlier then your schedule, advertising the "new" aluminum cars. There was a paragraph in the book saying they shaved a half hour off the schedule near the end as an attempt to compete with their own buses but then they...

  • Hi Paul, Thanks for the info, wouldn't have thought of a speed restriction under the NYC, suspect this was lower then normal overhead wires that was the cause. I found a partial schedule on page 160 of Gordon and Mowers' "Trolley's Down the Mohawk Valley" but it only covers movements that connected to NYC trains from Schenectady to New York City and return. Any idea what time in...
