      If everyone will excuse an off-topic post, I will reply that there is encouraging news. Matters are not sorted out yet, but I believe there is an excellent chance the narrow gauge may operate in 2014.

      Moody shows a photo of a mixed train near the last days of operation, pulled by #24, as I recall, which he describes as "including a box car for way freight."

      It seems that nearly every principal "town" on the Sandy River had both a passenger depot and a freight depot.  Some were combined (Phillips) with some separate (Strong).
       
      Questions:  What kind of cars were used for the LCL shipments from the freight depots?  I don't recall seeing a photo of a boxcar parked on a siding near a freight depot.  Does that infer that passenger cars were used to transport LCL traffic, perhaps with loading done via a baggage cart when the train arrived?  I assume railcars were treated in a similar fashion?
