Car barn
« on: February 27, 2018, 04:52:34 PM »
Building a shed or car barn at Phillips was mentioned down below. A barn is one of the better things a railroad museum can do!

Does anyone have any recent news about it!

Folks,
        Here is a reply to my own question.

The frame is up at long last on the Car Barn. As I said above, a Car Barn is the best thing a railroad museum can do to preserve the collection of passenger and freight cars.  Ted Miles, WW&F Member

Folks,
        I saw some of those pictures on Facebook. I think it is great that a crew from the WW&F traveled up to the Sandy River Museum to help lay track and get some more of their cars under cover! Covered storage is the best thing a narrow gauge railroad museum can do for its cars.

I fully agree with Ted. In the late 70's AMTP built a carbarn on the shed yard to shelter most of its passenger cars and make up room in the engineshed. Since then the engineshed has been packed solid again. Hey don't you think the AMTP carbarn looks like  a bit  a just completed building in AC.

That is a handsome building, Alain. I especially like the graceful arch over the end.

It just goes to show you - we’re all same. We build a building so we have more storage room and then we immediately fill it. Then we build another building and....

Fortunately AMTP owns a large museum and off operating season they squeeze a bit the locomotives and rolling stock in there in order to make room for the railcar and a couple of cars that are usually sheltered in the engine shed and shop during the operating season.
