B&SR #11
« on: August 15, 2017, 02:54:05 AM »
Now that the B&SR #11 which is currently a full coach; has been back to boothbay railway Village for a few months, is there any sign of work starting to do the proposed restoration to a three-door combine?

It is going to be a good looking, one of a kind in Maine car if and when it happens!

Actually Coach 11 has remained at the WW&F since it arrived last year, it just normally stays in the car barn.  It was out for the picnic when we needed additional capacity.

I believe coach 11 is scheduled to go back to Boothbay after the end of the year. Boothbay volunteers have been at the WW&F examining the car for conversion work and I believe Boothbay is working on building the necessary parts for the conversion back to the cars original configuration.
