Is Box Car 67 considered completed, or just on hold due to other projects?

Two Feet to the Lakes has skyrocketed lately on amazon, starting at $470.00, and going as high as $1,231.03! It's not even in pristine condition, there all in "good" condition. All Robert C. Jones Two Footers books are amazing and insightful for me, one of the younger generation of railroad enthusiasts. Sounds like a great buy to me!

Here is a map concerning the situation involving the road and river.

Wow! as of 9:30pm, they have reached over $21,000. Impressive fundraising, considering that about 2 hours ago they had not reached $20,000! I hope they can make the deadline!

I saw the online link is now available.

I wonder if the idea of bringing the railroad back is still a reality, or another lost cause...

Here is a photo of Hannaford supermarket, Willett road, and CMP, and a railroad line embedded where it once was.

There is about a half a mile's worth of railroad bed between the location of the B&SRR yard and Hannaford. Maybe possibility to extend the bed after getting a crossing across Willett road?

Thanks Steve.

The school that is there has not been used in many years. The reason why the school is not being used anymore was either due to amounts of either mold, lead, asbestos, was found, and another school was built far away from it to replace it. The school now is abandoned, and more than likely should be taken down, and turned back into what it used to be.

The fortunate part about this school is that due to the fact that the school district still owns the plot of land, it has not been broken up, and turned into shops or much form of modernization.
