Pluses: Nice day and nice cars. I especially enjoyed the Brooklyn 1001 PCC running in reverse! Minuses: Poor turnout due to another rail show that day and the gift shop was closed!

It was nice meeting you at BERA on saturday Lou. You did an excellent job dispatching, especially with that three car lineup of 775, 1602, and the plow.
Yours truly operated 1602 back to the yard from the temporary end of the line on trip.

That 1300 series gate car is a disaster, I remember it in the 1960's being in relativity good shape, it should have been covered in tarps.
I doubt it can be saved.

I believe that is 1362. It was in good shape. I believe that it was coupled to 1349 and used in service forty plus years ago at the museum.

I guess that is what happens when there is more rolling stock on the property than car barns to hold them.

I agree Karl but would having tarps covering that car prevented such total destruction ? I rode those gate cars, it sure is a shame.

Well, the one in poorer shape at the time. 1349, is alive & well.
Plus 1227 & a few others in restorable shape.

Traps trap moisture on a wooden car, especially when you next to the Long Island Sound. Tarps have been on most of those cars from time to time but tarps do fail, and where is the money?

How about joining us in Elevating the Collection and build some buildings to protect these treasures.

The "Haunted Isle" bus is 1257. I believe that 1261 is currently under a tarp.
