Museum Discussion / Parts
« on: March 24, 2015, 10:54:26 AM »
I had been going through older posts here, especially the Dairy Car thread.   A question came to me.   I know the museum can build rolling stock pretty well.  The wood and fasteners aren't really a problem from what I see.   Truck frames can be fabricated.  Where does the museum get wheel sets and couplers?   I know there was some existing from the original railway but where would we source more?   

 (Maybe over thinking something again)

Speaking of big ticket items.....  are there any more lanterns left???

Theres a huge shopping center where coal and Graphite was mined in Cranston RI.   Every so often a hold appears in a parking lot where a shaft has collapsed.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but I'll go anyway.   Is there anything left of the depot or tank at Head Tide?  I read the tank had a concrete base.  Is it still there?

I didn't know there were that many from RI here.   Anyone up for a carpool or a convoy up for a work session?????
