B&M Milk Platform - Prototype

This milk platform is at an unknown location along the B&M

Prototype Inspiration
The two photos found here are what I used for inspiration when I built my own milk platform as seen in the last post. The photo above I photocopied years ago while doing some research in Vermont. The other views the platform in the background of a B&M photo, Bob Nimke's collection. As you can see both structures are similar in size and appearance. These platforms were used in the early era of milk train operations. I am not sure when the last one was finally scrapped...I would like to think in the early 1950s but most likely in the late 1930's or sometime in the 1940's...George Dutka
