I believe the ancient coach at Sanders was the same one which for years sat in a backyard in North Conway, NH between the center of town and the Mt. Cranmore ski slope area.  Then it got moved to the Conway Scenic RR yard and placed on trucks. Next it turned up over at Phillips, ME.  It is a true historic gem and deserves to be indoors.  Close examination last year revealed much rot and deterioration. If vandals don't get it, the weather soon will.  It still has some of its original wooden window shutters in place! Simply amazing.  How/why did it and the MEC steel car end up at Phillips? What was the plan?
