Arthur Griffin B&H 1940 excursion photos

Bill Reidy:
I just ran across two links on Digital Commonwealth to photos taken by Arthur Griffin during a B&H excursion in 1940:

Tom Casper:
He spent to much film on folks.  Need more equipment!

Tom C.

Ed Lecuyer:
Interior shot of WW&F Coach 3?

Harold Downey:
Yes, that is definitely coach 3.  All the details are correct.  Still has hat racks and shades; the ceiling has been painted white, the center lighting is gone.

Here is an exterior shot that sure looks like #3 as well - nice that it shows the original steps/platform.

Great quality photographs, with high resolution scans.

Allan Fisher:
As the curator of a very large railroad archive, I can tell you that these photos are a gold mine for an archives and for future researchers.
Many railfans don't seem to understand that 3/4 and side shots of railroad equipment might be wonderful for railroad modelers and for those junkies that want to have a picture of every piece of a railroad's equipment, but for historical purposes, shots like these with many passengers and early railfans all over different parts of the equipment are what will be important one hundred years from now.
