Strasburg Rolling Stock

New England Rolling stock at Strasburg Ry.

While at the 2012 Expo Don and I had a chance to visit the Strasburg Ry. which operates live steam and has a nice display of vintage railroad rolling stock that is in excellent condition. This rolling stock is occasionally used on mixed steam train operations.

Three of the pieces are of New England origin which I thought you might want to take a look at. Unfortunately two of the three are located in spots that are not great for photography as one is looking into the sun, but we took our photos anyhow. The Rutland door and one half boxcar was in a great spot after the Saturday extra steam train departed. The coaches were hiding the car...enjoy...George Dutka

This car is in immaculate condition. It was totally rebuilt in the late 1990's. Jack Swanberg photographed this car back then and his photos and short  article appeared in the CVRHS Ambassador back then.  It was actually nice to see it first hand.
