2 Foot gauge Plymouth locomotive in NJ
« on: June 08, 2019, 06:31:31 PM »
I don't know if this has been posted elsewhere on this site, but on the Railway Preservation News site, there is a thread detailing some of the problems of the New Jersey Transportation Museum.  The state is after them to clean up their site.  One post mentioned a 2-foot Plymouth falling off a flat car on the rip track next to the woods.  Is this something that would be worthwhile for the WW&F?

Is the "discrete" looking into something commissioned by the BOD, or is it being done independently?

This is independent at this time as there is nothing for sale, or will be for a period of time.  The state has given an extension for correction until Dec 2019 so there is nothing immediate to do.  Subject closed for now.
