Title: Boothbay Passenger cars
Post by: Ted Miles on September 25, 2016, 06:16:32 PM
I saw a report that the Edaville #21 ex SR & RL #21 ex Phillips & Megantic #2 is now at the Boothbay Railway Village.

Can anyone tell me if they bought it or leased it?

I think it was the last antique Maine car at Edaville Railroad; which is now Thomas Land. I saw it there in 2000, long after the rest of the cars left to go to Portland; so I do not think it was ever at the Maine Narrow Gauge Museum.

Coach 21 has been at BRV for a number of years.  The status of its ownership may be a private matter; the important thing is that it is in a preservation environment, being cared for, and accessible to the public.  I believe they use it as a first class upgrade ticket at many of their events.

See ya
