Engine 1 view is cropped from the photo of a work train in the Head Tide cut.  Coach 3 photo was taken at Edaville.

George Mansfield's business card came up for sale:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/antique-ECONOMIC-RAILWAYS-MANSFIELD-SYSTEM-Boston-MA-BILLERICA-BEDFORD-RR-/162070915599

The text on the card reads, "Geo. E. Mansfield, 24 Washington Street, Boston. Economic Railways, Mansfield System". It would appear to date from his post-B&SR work as a private railroad consultant, maybe late 1880s.

I was the only bidder, which surprised me. (Needless to say I think it's worth more than $4.99.) My plan is eventually to donate it to the museum.
