Title: Car #33
Post by: Ted Miles on June 30, 2021, 01:18:00 PM
         The Sandy River web site mentions a car #33 being converted to a combine. Anyone know the history of that car? Was it something that came from the Edaville Railroad?

As we know that WW&F did a similar conversion for ADA reasons, which is a good thing!

Ex Bridgeton boxcar, I believe #54. Edaville converted it to a coach with longer roof, platforms, and windows.  It came to Phillips 10 or 11 years ago as 'junk' from MNG. It was found to be in decent shape , no windows or seats tho. We put trucks under it, I built a set of benches, and we used it as an excursion car. It's number 33 is in line with the SR&RL passenger car numbering. 32 being the exMNG, ex ex EDA excursion car 104.
