"Freight equipment from the Sandy River, B&SR and WW&F will also be featured."

What Sandy River car(s) are coming? Anything from Phillips?

Appears to be the same car that Boothbay has been using the past few years.

Here's a shot of it from last year when in service at the village.


Posted to facebook by Joe Card earlier today was an Edaville Roster from the late 40's or early 50's. There's one bit on information listed that states that flatcars 30-33 were Ex-WWF;B&SR. Could this be a typo or did Edaville actually obtain flatcars from the WWF, possibly through the B&SR?

Also note the last line on the paper stating that 8 other flatcars and 1 boxcar were dismantled and stored for future use. I assume that some of these cars later became Edaville's open air car fleet.

Attached is a picture of list that was posted to facebook.

Not to bring up an old topic but what did happen to all of their 2ft equipment? Still there rotting?


For 2017, the Boothbay Railway Village will be bringing a live steam engine to the Railroad Hobby Show.

The locomotive was built by the H K Porter Company in Pittsburgh in 1925 for the Raritan Copper Company in New Jersey. H K Porter specialized in industrial locomotives, and the Boothbay locomotive was one of eleven owned by Raritan Copper.

The 2-foot gauge engine will be set up outdoors at the Railroad Hobby Show, operating on approximately 100 feet of track under its own steam power.   Boothbay Railway Village operates a fully certified boiler shop and completed restoration of the H K Porter locomotive in 2014.
