Since this involved Boothbay I will put it here, if the mods want to move that's fine. I went to Edaville today and while talking with one of the workers was told that Boothbay had built a new excursion car for them. It was not in service yet do not having its paint finished however if you rode the train you could see it outside the machine shop. So I did and here is a pic of the new car that was built in Boothbay.http://markspremulli.zenfolio.com/p597385795/h4b884c79#h4b884c79

Built in Boothbay, no.  Built by a Boothbay employee, yes.  These cars are actually being built by one of the WW&F's neighbors in Alna, who is also a regular employee of Boothbay Railway Village.  He has a quonset hut shop that you can see from the train.  This hut has two tracks.  This past winter he was also working on Monson #3 steam locomotive, bringing it back to operational status.  He is constructing these cars from scratch (steel construction, not wood).

Thank you James, I didn't know that. Still the car looked nice from what I saw of it.

Interesting that the current Edaville cars are riding on replica passenger car trucks with roller bearings.
