Work and Events / Re: Coach 8 Seating

What about marine grade covers for the pew pads? We have padding on outdoor seating on one of the dining yachts I work on and they are taken inside every night. When they get salt spray on them we just wipe them off. If they are permanently in the car they should be fine. Don’t use them on rainy days or Victorian Christmas and they would be fine.

I have to ask, how is talking about “climate change “ not political?? Just asking..

See, I think it is the best thing for the future... Just imagine the events that could happen, from concerts, bbq, and ice cream socials. Not to mention as a great place for Santa to reside. I know it does work for an historical building but who knows what mock sides could be built.

So when was it built in the first place? I do not remember it there when I docked at the museum last in 2011 and all I remember is the sculpture.

It would be more believable if it was one of the old Green Mountain engines!

Hey 1/2 of ny is New England but we never get included any more. Eastern Suffolk county and parts of upstate. My family settled in southhold ct in the 1640s... not our fault Charles 2 hated puritans and gave us to his brother the duke of York! We hate NYC and the citidiots it bring us. One of the slogans for hopeful Peconic County is the "The end of New England" but I think it should include the town of Brookhaven as well so all puritan settlements and manor land are included.
Sorry as an islander who works the sea, their aint no Island left for islanders like me so I left. But my heart is still in New England my heart is still on Long Island. Sorry for the rant they just forget us extreme southern New Englanders.

I remember reading on the forum that there is a steel frame of one of the coaches abandoned? Does anyone have pictures?

When I worked for F Nelson Blounts brother for the short time I never asked about his brother. He passed six months after I started there. But both Blount families are connected to  Edaville. Great stories I heard about the good old days at Edaville. It is just something that is missing in preservation is all I was stating and if the hack is ever acquired by the museum it would nice to see her preserved lettered Edaville.

We don't own the caboose so how it should be restored is purely the owner's decision. We're just happy to borrow it for special events.

That said, we've been joking that we should do an Edaville Day at the WW&F. And I agree that the Atwood/Blount efforts should probably be memorialized in an appropriate manner.

What I commented on was an earlier post on the boxcar. I agree steamtown has no mention of Blount. Now that you have a whole train that would be awesome.

Am I weird to think if 554 is acquired someday would love to see her preserved as Edaville 554? I just think it's a slap in the face of two men Atwood and Blount that nothing preserved that was built by the Edaville is labeled so. Atwood saved them and Blount kept it going after his death and Blount connections kept it running after Blounts death. Sorry to hijack a little. Love the work on the box car.

I'll tell you the booklet is awesome. Granted I spent a year or two no as a member but I plan to bring the booklet to my local museum to read maybe we will get more interest?
