cattle shipment on the WW&F RR
« on: January 29, 2021, 11:26:33 AM »
With the rebuilding of B&SR 56, and its use as a stock car, I thought members might be interested in a short report I found in the October 14, 1903 issue of the Waterville Mail, regarding a cattle shipment from North Vassalboro.

Fred Albee of Wiscasset has just shipped a carload of cattle from this city to Wiscasset over the narrow gauge road.
Hey Rocky, watch me pull a moose trout out of my hat.

I confess to be fascinated with this car.  Is there more historical information about its use to transport livestock.

I would love to see it restored -- at least externally -- to its unique livestock configuration.  That would also make it a one of a kind Maine 2 ft restoration.
